Cloned beef is safe

30th November 2010

Independent experts have said that people will not suffer harm if they consume meat and milk from cloned cattle.

The Advisory Committee on Novel Foods and Processes said the products were "unlikely" to present a risk to health. The Food Standards Agency's chief scientist Andrew Wadge said: "The Advisory Committee on Novel Foods and Processes has confirmed that meat and milk from cloned cattle and their offspring shows no substantial difference to conventionally produced meat and milk, and therefore is unlikely to present a food safety risk."
