Food and biomedical products from cloned and genetically engineered animals pose no significant health risks, but stronger U.S. government oversight must be implemented to ensure its safety, a National Academy of Sciences panel said on Tuesday.



In a broad one-year study of animal biotechnology, researchers said there was a “low probability” consuming food from cloned livestock would trigger allergic reactions.



The Food and Drug Administration, which requested the study, is preparing to decide whether to allow the marketing of milk and meat products from hundreds of cloned cattle.
