How long was the study conducted for? How many subjects were involved in the study? Does the FDA plan to regulate how food derived from cloned animals is clearly stated on packages? Also, the scientists who were involved in the study, are they independent of the FDA and of animal related industries? For example, did a scientist who is funded by the cattle industry perform the testing? Also, why wasn't morality discussed at all? Where can I find the study? Is it published?

I am disappointed in the government for not better protecting the consumer. People live their lives based on morals. What some my find immoral the government does not. Nor do they care to spread the knowledge to consumers and let them make the decision for theirself. Products with GMO's are not labeled. If it is allowed to sell meat derived from clones, whether the meat itself is from a cloned animal or the offspring of, it should be labeled as such.
