    Ethics of Cloning

    Ethics of Cloning

    In 2008, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved food derived from cloned animals. In addition, these products did not need to be labeled as “cloned” or “from clones” (Black, 2008). The FDA explained that you would not be eating the clone itself. It takes thousands of dollars to clone a food animal such as a cow or pig. Animals that are cloned for improved food production are used for a breeding program to produce many offspring with the desirable traits for increased meat or milk yield. These offspring of the clones are fair game for food.
