Food Products From Cloned Animals And Their Offspring Are Safe, But Regulated

August 3, 2010: 09:09 PM EST
The U.K.’s Food Standards Agency says eating food products made from healthy clones or their offspring does not pose a food safety risk. But such products are regulated “novel foods” that must be approved before they are sold. Looking into reports that cloned animal offspring are entering the country’s food chain, the agency discovered that meat from one of two bulls born in the U.K. from cloned U.S. cow embryos entered the food chain and was eaten. Meat from the second was prevented from being sold. The agency also found that an offspring of a cloned cow is part of a dairy herd but could not verify that its milk has been marketed. The penalty for failing to comply with novel food regulations is a £5,000 ($7,986) fine.
