WASHINGTON, Oct 31 (AFP) - Meat and milk produced by cloned animals is safe to eat, a government agency said in a report published Friday.
"Edible products from normal, healthy clones or their progeny do not appear to pose increased food consumption risk relative to comparable products from conventional animals," concluded the Food and Drug Administration study.
The FDA has not decided whether to allow the sale of products from cloned animals.
