FDA Expected to OK Cloned Meat

Is cloned meat safe? The government seems to think so. According to the Seattle Times, “A long-awaited study by federal scientists concludes meat and milk from cloned animals and their offspring are safe to eat and should be allowed to enter the food supply without special labeling.”

“All of the studies indicate that the composition of meat and milk from clones is within the compositional ranges of meat and milk consumed in the U.S.,” the FDA scientists concluded in a report published in the Jan. 1 issue of the journal Theriogenology.” Farmers have cloned animals for meat and milk, but voluntarily kept them off the shelves. —MEGHANN MARCO
