Dear FDA Representatives:

I read my local news with concern today. An article detailed plans to allow cloned animals to enter the meat supply because they are considered no different from traditionally raised animals we have eaten in the past. I do not have a problem with making cloned animal products available, but I do have a HUGE issue with the FDA not requiring labeling. It seems to me that consumers should be allowed to choose which meat products they wish to purchase and consume. I find it extremely unethical for this regulation to pass. As a parent, I am concerned about the foods I feed to my children. I want to make the choices myself. Please reconsider and mandate that all cloned food products (including milks etc.) contain a clearly labeled description of what is in the package and its origin. Thank you. Linda Broderick
