As a US consumer I will like my thought known...If the food I purchace is from cloned stock, I want consumer product information clealy stated on the package. When we become the first country to allow cloning into the food chain, let global consumers know they are purchacing cloned food so we have a choice.
Modern food and nutritional industry should not be excluded from the regulatory oversite or ignore the consumers "need to know".The FDA is accountable to consumers, not the industry...it is clear that the human diet has changed. Modern times is witnessing problems wtih cardic,diabetes,obesity etc and consumers can only make changes in health and consumer choice when information is made available.
