Jan. 8, 2008 – FDA Approves Cloned Milk for Human Consumption

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released its 968 page report “Animal Cloning: A Risk Assessment,” and announced to the public that milk from cloned cows had been approved for human consumption.

In its Jan. 15, 2008 press release announcing the report and its conclusions, the FDA wrote that “meat and milk from clones of cattle, swine, and goats, and the offspring of clones from any species traditionally consumed as food, are as safe to eat as food from conventionally bred animals.”
