October 20, 2006 -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) may decide by the end of this year to allow the sale of milk and meat from cloned animals for public consumption, The Washington Post reported in its Tuesday edition.
The decision is based largely on new data indicating that milk and meat from cloned livestock and their offspring pose no unique risks to consumers, the Post said.
"Our evaluation is that the food from cloned animals is as safe as the food we eat every day," said Stephen F. Sundlof, the FDA's chief of veterinary medicine, the Post reported. Reprinted from CattleNetwork.com
