FDA approves cloned food

Reuters reports that the FDA approves cloned food.

Jan. 15, 2008 - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved cloned beef, pigs and goats for human consumption. Cloning advocates expect it will be the offspring of cloned animals, not the costly clones themselves, that will eventually provide meat or milk to U.S. consumers. Experts say it could take four or five years before cloned products reach American supermarkets. Lindsay Claiborn reports.
