Today the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today issued three documents on the safety of animal cloning -- a draft risk assessment; a proposed risk management plan; and a draft guidance for industry.  These documents include an assessment that meat and milk from clones of adult cattle, pigs and goats, and their offspring, are as safe to eat as food from conventionally bred animals.

The FDA is seeking comments on these documents for the next 90 days.  Please view the FDA press release for information on how to submit comments.
