GENERAL
As a biologist and as a consumer, I have no objections to eating or producing cloned animals. This debate is perpetuated by people who object to meat in all cases, or those ignorant of cloning in general. Any labeling would bring fear to those inclined to be fearful, and is unnecessary. Since there is no scientific evidence that meat or other products from clones is any different than from the parent animal, there is no reason to label it as cloned. These are not GMOs, in fact they are the least genetically modified organisms.
