After a long awaited study, in which dozens of studies from around the world have been investigated, the FDA has finally ruled cloned meat and milk safety. In addition to this report, FDA said that cloned meat and milk needed no special labeling and that it could be introduced to the market safely.

The latter decision has risen dust among public and other scientists who wish they had a choice in choosing between cloned and naturally bred animals just like we can choose to eat just organic foods, decide between halal or kosher food or drink free-trade coffee.

The Food and Drug Administration will endorse the use of cloning technology for cattle, goats and pigs as soon as it publishes a key safety assessment next week.

All the studies confirmed that the composition of meat and milk from clones is within the compositional ranges of meat and milk consumed in the U.S, that there were not differences between vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids, fat, water and carbohydrate content and that cloned cattle is not more prone to infections and illnesses.
All in all, FDA finds that cloned animal or the offspring of cloned animals are indistinguishable from an animal that are conventionally bred.

The thing is that many ranchers and dairy producers have already cloned animals for meat and milk and that their offspring have been slaughtered and went into the food chain.
The FDA sees cloning as a natural extension of livestock reproductive technologies, just like in vitro fertilization or artificial insemination, but not all consumers would agree.
Certain studies found that 64% of Americans were uncomfortable with animal cloning and 43% believed food from clones was unsafe.

Other skeptics are asking for more studies done by the companies that are not into the cloning business.
It is expected that there will be a 15% drop in purchase of U.S. dairy products if products from cloned animals appear on the market.
