Yum! Time for Some Cloned Steak!

Oh, yay. More meat.

Meat and milk from cloned animals is safe for human consumption, according to a new report from the European Food Safety Agency (EFSA).

The draft report, which considers data on animal health and food safety, was submitted to EU Commissioners last week, opening up the possibility for cloned animals to be allowed to enter the food chain....

Cloning has not been approved for food products in Europe or elsewhere, but the latest report, written at the request of EU Commissioners could lead to legislation being drawn up on the issue.

The US is expected to allow food from cloned animals onto supermarket shelves later this year whilst reviews are currently underway in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.


The US will be allowing cloned animal food onto supermarket shelves? Can't we just get replicators instead and skip the whole living animal thing?
