GENERAL
I have serious concerns regarding approval of cloned meat for human consumption, most especially the proposed lack of labeling for such food stuffs. I would not be comfortable consuming those types of products, nor would I be comfortable serving them to my family. Approval of this product without labeling will insure that me and my family will avoid meat products in their entirety.
If the product is so safe, then why not label it and let consumers decide for themselves if they want "cloned" material. Without labeling consumers have no manner by which to avoid those products, other than a wholesale avoidance of meat in general.
Please at the very least provide labeling for such products, and allow consumers to make informed choices as to what they are feeding their family.
