An animal welfare group on Friday delivered a petition of 7,000 names calling on the government to prevent products from cloned animals entering the food chain.
The petition, delivered by activists wearing “cloned” masks of Prime Minister David Cameron, was hastily organised after news emerged this week that meat from offspring of a cloned cow had entered the food chain.
Written by Compassion for World Farming, the petition called for more openness about food production and expressed concern about the welfare of cloned animals.
