You Just Ate a Clone, Guv
Posted on Aug 3, 2010
Meat from a bull descended from a cloned cow entered the British food supply, a government regulator said, and “will have been eaten.” Sale of the meat was apparently in violation of European law as the Food Standards Agency has not yet decided whether meat derived from cloning is kosher, so to speak.
Meat from the offspring of a cloned cow entered the food chain last year, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) has said.
The FSA said it had identified two bulls born in the UK from embryos harvested from a cloned cow in the US.
Both bulls had been slaughtered, but meat from one had entered the food chain, the FSA said.
