Date:1/11/2008

Statement by Mark Walton, Ph.D., President, ViaGen

January 11, 2008

WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "In light of the European Food Safety Authority's strong endorsement of the safety of food from clones and their offspring, we urge the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to release its final risk assessment at the earliest possible moment and to lift the voluntary moratorium. The international scientific consensus is clear: food from these animals and their offspring is as safe to eat as any other food. The opportunity to increase the availability of exceptional breeding stock offers great benefits to producers and consumers worldwide.

"ViaGen and Trans Ova - the major cloning companies in the U.S. - recently announced a tracking system that will ensure cloned animals are not introduced into the food supply. This supply chain management system was developed with the input of the entire food chain - including major representatives of the beef, pork, dairy, retail and food service industries."

-- Australia has accepted the New Zealand risk assessment, as they are governed by similar food safety agencies.

-- Japan has developed a risk assessment; the Japanese government is awaiting publicat
