The Food Standards Agency has admitted that it does not know how many embryos from cloned animals have been imported into Britain, after it was revealed that meat from one had already entered the food chain and been eaten.

Yesterday, the FSA revealed that meat from the offspring of a cloned cow entered the UK food chain a year ago, in the first official confirmation of a breach of food laws.

A second bull born from an embryo taken from a cloned cow was slaughtered last week, but the meat was intercepted before it could be sold. The agency has found another cloned offspring in a dairy herd.

Today, Highland council said it was investigating the history of both bulls with farmer Callum Innes from Auldearn, Inverness. “We are working with the FSA and we sent two animal health officers to the farm yesterday to meet and speak with the farmer.”
