FDA Says Cloned Animals Are Safe for Consumption

Hosted by

It will be many years before foods from cloned cattle, pigs and goats reach the shelves of American markets, but the Food and Drug Administration says the meat will be safe to eat, acknowledging that a lot of consumers won't believe it. The FDA's "final risk assessment" of food from cloned animals was released today after all 969 pages were obtained by the Washington Post.  Rick Weiss wrote the report in today's paper.
