    LONDON (AP) - Local government officials have confiscated ice cream made with human breast milk from a London shop amid concerns the dessert is unsafe.

    A spokeswoman from Westminster City Council said Monday it was responding to two complaints from the public over whether a shop should be selling edibles made from other people's bodily fluids and awaiting guidance from Britain's Food Standards Agency. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in keeping with council policy.

    The official said the ice cream, marketed as "Baby Gaga" and launched last week, is being tested with the full cooperation of The Icecreamists, the parlor marketing the dessert.

    Viruses, including hepatitis, can be passed on through breast milk
