GENERAL
As a consumer, I do NOT want to eat food from a cloned animal or its offspring, and view labeling of food as derived from animal cloning to be essential for my ability to make informed food choices. As a health care professional (and consumer), I am concerned about food from cloned animals being evaluated as safe based on a comparison to other food practices currently being used in the US. These practices, even though they are currently being used, may not be inherently safe. I feel it is inappropriate to evaluate safety based on an established standard rather than to evaluate safety based on potential health detriment.
