FDA Approves Food From Cloned Animals

As reported by the New York Times, the FDA has concluded that food from cloned animals is safe to eat.  The Agriculture Department, however, has asked farmers to continue withholding foods from cloned animals from the market, "saying the department wanted time to allay concerns among retailers and overseas trading partners."

“We are very cognizant we have a global environment as it pertains to movement of agricultural products,” said Bruce I. Knight, under secretary of agriculture for marketing and regulatory programs. He said it was his goal to have the transition last months, not years.
