The blind watchdog

Apparently, the Food Standards Agency’s future is in doubt after the recent cloned cattle fiasco, the agency admitting to having absolutely no idea how many farm animals in Britain were descended from clones.

First it was milk from cloned cows, now it’s meat from cloned animals entering the food chain, both illegal without the prior permission of the FSA.

There is apparently no evidence that food from cloned animals or their offspring poses a health risk. There was no initial evidence that thalidomide posed a health risk.
