Two days ago the news broke that milk from cloned cows had secretly been inserted into our food chain now it turns out that meat from cloned cows has been sold too.
Beef from a clone farm bull has illegally entered the food chain, ending up on family dinner tables.
The animal, the offspring of a cloned cow, was slaughtered last summer and the meat put on sale to the public.
A second bull was killed last week and would also have been sold for meat until the Food Standards Agency (FSA) intervened and stopped the sale.
The FSA decided to investigate after revelations in the Daily Mail about the emergence of clone farming, despite deep unease among consumers and safety regulators.
It is illegal for the meat and milk of the offspring of a clone to enter the human food chain in Britain or the rest of Europe under the so-called Novel Food regulations.
The mother of the two bulls was a clone created from cells taken from the ear of a prize-winning milking cow in the United States.
