(Newser) – Ever wondered what human breast milk would taste like in a delicious frozen snack? Well, you're going to have to keep on wondering, because local government officials have confiscated a London shop's supply of "Baby Gaga" ice cream, after two complaints from the public, the AP reports. The Westminister City Council says it's waiting for guidance from Britain's Food Standards Agency on whether it's okay to sell edibles made from other people's bodily fluids. It's also testing the ice cream to address health concerns.

The shop’s founder says he doesn’t know of any law against breast milk ice cream. Though several diseases can pass through breast milk, he believes his stock, which is tested and pasteurized, may be safer than normal milk. "People who are lactose intolerant have tried it and had no problems," he tells Aol News. Besides, the titillating treat was mainly designed as food for thought. "It raises the philosophical question: Is it better if we use milk from cows injected with hormones … or human milk?" (Read more breast milk stories.)
