Image source: BBC article: Are meat and milk from cloned cattle safe?
"The United States Food and Drug Administration approved the sale of unidentified cloned animal products in 2008 but there was ‘voluntary’ agreement to sell only the products of offspring of the cloned animals because the first clones are frequently unhealthy.
Unlabeled cloned meat and milk were approved by the EU in 2011 as food safety proposals were undemocratically ripped up. The FDA claims “Clones are really just genetic copies of the animals from which they are produced” and that claim is parroted by bureaucrats in EU.
However, that is patently false because the animals cloned by somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) are not true clones but all bear a mixture of mitochondrial genes from the donor somatic cell and the egg cytoplasm, a condition referred to as heteroplasmy..."
(My comment:) Cloned meat is with us - and it can be sold without a label... another experiment in which we are being the guinea pigs.
