I do not care if cloned meat and dairy products are used, but I would like to know that information, so I personally can avoid them. If this passes as planned, I will sharply curtail my use of both these products until responsible companies announce that their products do not contain cloned elements. It would be nice if my own government agency was responsible first! The majority of Americans (as polled) do not want cloned products, and would certainly want to know if they are consuming them. My question is: Why do the American people deserve NOT to know what type of food they eat - what is being hidden from them? We deserve better than to be guinea pigs for some "oh so sorry we didn't know cloned beef/dairy would have these undesirable effects" years from now. Please reconsider.
