National Alert: Keep Animal Cloning Out of the Farm Bill — and Out of the U.S. Food Supply

Despite the more than 150,000 comments submitted by concerned citizens like you earlier this year, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is expected to announce in the next few months that animals can be cloned for food and sold without identifying labels.

As a result, Senators Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) and Arlen Specter (R-PA) have introduced Amendment #3524 to the U.S. Senate version of the Farm Bill. The Amendment asks for studies that will fill the gaps in the FDA’s assessment and address concerns over the animal welfare, economic impact, and public health implications of allowing cloned animals into the food supply.

Please contact your Senators today in support of Amendment #3524 — to prevent the FDA from moving forward on the issue of animal cloning until critical concerns can be addressed.
