WASHINGTON (AP) - The company that makes Land O'Lakes products
and operates dozens of milk plants says it'll take a pass on milk from cloned cows.
Dallas-based Dean Foods says "numerous surveys" show Americans don't want to buy dairy products made from such milk.
The Food and Drug Administration has already given preliminary approval to milk and meat from cloned animals. Final approval could come later this year, with the government insisting it's all safe.
But Dean Foods says while it respect the FDA, it's concerned about its customers.
America's biggest milk company is joining smaller companies like Ben and Jerry's and Organic Value in opposing milk from cloned cows.
