Saying that cloned meat is “virtually indistinguishable” from the conventional variety, the US FDA has declared “that meat and milk from cattle, swine and goat clones is as safe to eat as the food we eat every day” and need not even be labeled as coming from clone sources. Clone sources for food are nowhere near the marketplace presently due to the expense – they’re wanted for breeding – but could end up in the food supply as they get too old for that purpose. [GT]
