Cloned cow milk on sale

2nd August 2010

According to a report by the New York Times, a dairy farmer in the UK has claimed to be selling milk from a cow with cloned parents.

The Food Standards Agency said it was investigating the issue and a spokeswoman added: "Since 2007 the FSA interpretation of the law has been that meat and products from clones and their offspring are considered novel foods and would therefore need to be authorised before being placed on the market. The agency has not received any applications relating to cloning and no authorisations have been made."
