FDA: Meat, milk from clones safe to eat

January 15, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
A new report from the FDA says meat and milk from cloned animals is safe to eat. The risk assessment is being released Tuesday.FDA experts measured vitamins, calcium, protein, fat and other compounds from 600 cloned animals, including cows and pigs, saying all of the levels looked normal.

However, the cloning process is expensive, so experts predict few companies will create herds of cloned animals to produce the food we eat.
