Dolly's death a warning signal against milk from GE cows

Unexpected problems with cloned GE animals such as those made by AgResearch are a warning signal that ERMA controls on such experiments are inadequate.

"This adds to our concern that ERMA is allowing cloned GE animals to remain in the open field with inadequate containment , prevention of HGT , or monitoring of the health of workers and their families,' says Jon Carapiet from GE Free NZ in food and environment.

"Commercial pressure is compromising good science in attempting to rush to market such products as cheap GE cheese.” says Mr Carapiet
