NO! I DON'T WANT CLONED MEAT PRODUCTS! We need to improve the current health conditions of our livestock and we also need to re- evaluate humane vs. in-humane slaughter house rules. As it stands, adding cloned animals to the population doesn't fix anything. Cloned animals will add to the already existing problems such as,enviromental degradation in and around feed lots, ever decreasing biodiversity, and increased susceptibility to disease.

But above all of this, YOU CAN NOT PUT THESE ITEMS ON THE MARKET WITH OUT A LABELS!!!!! Our meat products are already shunned and disputed by global markets. If you refuse to label ALL cloned animal products AND bi-products, global markets could renounce many, many more exported items declaring, "We don't know if your products contain Clones and our country does not condone Cloned Animal Production therefore, we can no longer trust meat and dairy products from US Farmers."
