The offspring of cloned cows have entered the food chain in the U. K, but the US has a different attitude towards it, as the US authorities have been working on the same since 2001 to find the safety of meat and milk of cloned cows.
Meat and milk producers were asked to stop the production till the time the Food and Drug Administration approves the safety of products from cloned animals.
According to Karen Batra from Biotechnology Industry Organization, products from clone animals are not harmful for health and are perfectly legal.
Even according to the report of the US National Academy of Sciences, which was released in 2001, the food from cloned animals was safe.
Over viewing all the reports related to the safety of cloned animals, the FDA was able to issue its guidance on the matter by 2008.
"Meat and milk from clones of cattle, swine, and goats, and the offspring of clones from any species traditionally consumed as food, are as safe to eat as food from conventionally bred animals”, FDA concluded.
Although, the FDA approves the safety of products from cloned animals, the voluntary moratorium on cloned animals remained at the request of the US Department of Agriculture.
