U.S. unsure if cloned meat has been sold in North America‏

Genetically Engineered Animals

By Sarah Schmidt, Postmedia News August 10, 2010

OTTAWA — The U.S. Secretary of Agriculture on Tuesday said he doesn't know whether cloned cows or their offspring have made it into the North American food supply.

But Tom Vilsack, in Ottawa to talk trade with food exporters and Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz, emphasized that if they have, the animals are safe to eat.

Experiments with genetically modified animals increase

Genetically Engineered Animals

By Pallab Ghosh Science correspondent, BBC News 27 July 2010

The number of scientific procedures involving genetically modified animals has overtaken those involving "normal animals" for the first time.

A Home Office report revealed that more than 3.6 million scientific procedures involving animals were carried out in the UK during 2009.

Of these, just 48% involved genetically "normal" animals.

The total number of procedures carried out using normal animals decreased slightly.

Mouse and e coli genes injected into a Yorkshire pig embryo

Fifteen years ago in a lab at the University of Guelph in Ontario – then home to some of Canada’s most ardent supporters of the new science of genetic engineering – an idea was conceived. Five years later, “Wayne,” a genetically modified (GM) pig was born. Now, the so-called “Enviropig™” could soon be approved for human consumption in Canada and possibly the US as well.

A mouse that can speak? A monkey with Down's Syndrome? Dogs with human hands or feet? British scientists want to know if such experiments are acceptable, or if they go too far in the name of medical research.

To find out, Britain's Academy of Medical Sciences launched a study Tuesday to look at the use of animals containing human material in scientific research.
