California bill would require labeling of clones

Auto Date Sunday, April 6th, 2008

California State Senator Carol Migden introduced a bill requiring all food products from clones and their offspring be clearly labeled.

Rebecca Spector, west coast director of the Center for Food Safety, commented:

Consumers have the right to know that meat and milk they feed their children is safe.  Since FDA refuses to wait for science to show what’s really happening with cloned animals, it is now up to individual states to protect consumers and their families.  The Senator’s labeling bill will protect California through labeling, which restores consumer confidence and choice. 

A similar bill introduced by the entire California legislature was vetoed by Governor Schwarzenegger last year.
