Is the meat from “enviropigs” safe to eat?

    There doesn’t appear to be a clear answer to this question, and there may never be, as funding has been cut for the Enviropig program at the University of Guelph. However, according to a 2008 article from the Toronto Star, researchers close to the project “say they have enough evidence to declare Enviropigs safe to eat, since chemical analysis has shown the animal’s tissue composition is the same as an ordinary Yorkshire pig.” A 2010 article, on the other hand, cites the Center for Food Safety as going on the record with a definitive not-for-consumption rating simply because the pigs’ very existence raises too many ethical questions that society has yet to confront.
