Letter to PCC vendors and suppliers regarding products from cloned animals

January 18, 2012

To all valued PCC vendors and suppliers,

In January 2008 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ruled that food products from cloned animals and their offspring are safe for human consumption. PCC Natural Markets is deeply concerned about this ruling, particularly the decision not to require food manufacturers to label such products.

PCC disagrees with the FDA’s decision and believes it is wrong for several reasons:

PCC does not — and will not — sell any food products sourced from cloned animals or their offspring until these questions of concern are answered adequately. PCC believes that consumers have the right to know how their food is produced and where it comes from.

As an added assurance to our customers, PCC is requiring a signed agreement (PDF) from our suppliers verifying that no products sold to PCC contain ingredients from cloned animals or their offspring.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Sincerely,

Elin Smith, Interim Director of Merchandising
Scott Owen, Grocery Merchandiser
Elin Smith, Category Manager
Sven White, Meat & Seafood Merchandiser
Wendy McLain, HABA Merchandiser
Leon Bloom, Deli Merchandiser
Joe Hardiman, Produce Merchandiser
