Is meat from cloned animals okay to eat?

Milk and beef from cloned cows

Studies show that milk and beef from cloned cows was safe to eat. In 2010 a study to test wether or not cloned meat was safe to eat. Milk and beef from cloned cows were given to a study group at the FDA. The study found that the meat and milk were safe to eat. These animals were subjected to the same type of food that natural animals were. Scientist could not find a difference in the meat or milk.
