Though the bacteria was produced legally, it seems unlikely that it was also approved for human use or consumption. Also mentioned in the NYT article was beer containing human dna available for human consumption.
An FDA approved product?

Why would the FDA be involved in the approval of a non-pharmaceutical substance known to be entirely harmless to human health? Does the FDA have to approve the consumption of yoghurt, which contains lactobacillus? You're probably consuming human dna every time you clear your throat.
