GENERAL
Cloned animals and their by-products should be kept completely out of the food supply of both animals and humans. There are so many reasons not to allow animal cloning. There are the grave risks to the health and general welfare to the populace. There are also profound ethical and moral questions of animal cloning that haven't begun to be answered yet.
Furthermore, while cloned animals could be considered for non-food purposes such as wools, the risks of those animals making their way into the food supply is too high to warrant pursuing that use, and the same ethical questions remain.

In summary, animal cloning is far to risky to be considered seriously.
