I frankly am appalled that you would consider marketing products from cloned animals without proper labeling. I always thought it was part of the FDA's mission to protect the consumer, and to provide enough information so they can make informed decisions. Isn't that why you have stringent guidelines governing the marketing of drugs and other food products? Why are cloned food products any different?

If someone chooses to purchase products made from cloned animals, that's fine. But how can we choose if we don't know what we're buying? I would urge you to include appropriate labels on these food products. This is easy to implement, and you would allow American consumers to make informed decisions about what they feed themselves and their families.
