The idea of science playing too obvious a role in food tends to leave a bitter taste in most European consumers' mouths.
Meat from the offspring of a cloned cow has entered the food chain in the UK, the Food Standards Agency has confirmed.
The UK's Food Standards Agency said today (2 August) it would investigate reports that milk from the offspring of a cloned cow has gone on sale in the country.
The manufacture of meat and dairy products from cloned animals is likely to become legal in Europe under a revised EU novel food regulation.
