No milk produced from clones animals will be used by Dean's Foods the company announced recently


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The largest U.S. dairy processor and distributor said even if food products from cloned animals become a reality, it will not sell milk from animals that have been cloned because of ongoing consumer concerns.
Dean Foods Co. said late on Thursday that several surveys have shown their U.S. customers are not interested in buying milk or milk products that come from cloned animals.
"Our decision not to accept this milk is based on meeting our consumers' expectations," the company said in a statement.
"We see no consumer benefit from this technology."
