DeLauro Introduces House Bill on Labeling for Food from Cloned Animals

DeLauro Introduces House Bill on Labeling for Food from Cloned Animals

Representative Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), the new chair of the powerful House Agriculture Appropriations Committee, last week introduced a bill (H.R. 992) to require food that contains product from a cloned animal to be labeled as such. This bill is the House companion bill to S. 414, which was introduced to the U.S. Senate in January by Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD). DeLauro's bill was referred to the House Agriculture and House Energy and Commerce Committees; it currently has no co-sponsors and the text is not available. This is the third bill that has been introduced since the Food and Drug Administration released its draft Risk Assessment indicating that food from cloned animals is as safe as food from conventionally bred animals. IDFA will continue to monitor these bills and provide updates when available. IDFA has prepared an analysis of the Mikulski bill in a member Hotline titled, "S. 414, the 'Cloned Food Labeling Act,' and IDFA Messages." To read the analysis, members can click here.
