GENERAL
I know that the FDA studied the issue of safety of consuming milk or meat from cloned animals, and has found the cloned animals to be "virtually indistinguishable" from other animals. Though this may be the case, I think the FDA should require different and separate labelling for milk and meat from cloned animals. It is a consumer's right to know from where her food comes. I would not knowingly buy milk or meat from cloned animals, and neither would many others. The meat industry knows this, and that is why they don't want separate labelling. Please take my comment into account. Please require separate, different labelling for milk and meat from cloned animals. Thank you.
