GENERAL
I have two comments. One of them is a question. #1. Why does the FDA feel the need to produce cloned animal products? We (United States) do not have a food shortage, also, it is very expensive process. This point has not been made clear in any of the information provided by the FDA.
Comment: I hope the FDA thinks long and hard about the possible implications of introducing unlabeled cloned products (how will you track who is getting what?). Look what happened with Trans Fats. The FDA approved of years ago. We are the only country in the world that is doing this, why?
