a. European Commission
b. European Union
c. OECD
d. None of the above

ANSWER: European Commission
 
European Commission has not only banned cloning of farm animals, but sale of cloned livestock as well as offspring and products derived from them. This is because the technique of cloning has not advanced and animal welfare should be respected. High mortality rates at development stages of cloning raises animal welfare and ethical concerns.
