Hi,

I am concerned with this kind of food. I think an FDA Label (with percentage - where applicable - on consumer meat like in a Fast Food Place) which mentions that the product has "Cloned Animal" meat in it would allow consumers like me with a choice of opting out from such products. I think the consumers should be given a choice of knowing what they are eating so that each individual goes by his own thinking/belief. The FDA certainly does not know the effect of Cloned Animal meat on people whether they are healthy or with some kind of disease/disability etc. until somebody gets hurt badly. If FDA thinks there are no concerns w.r.t eating cloned animal meat, then it should leave the choice of selecting that kind of meat, with the consumers, by placing a LABEL on such products (Not just the meat but any other products). I hope FDA will listen to the concern of citizens of this country and put the LABEL on such meats and other products that contain cloned animal stuff.

Thank you,
Arun
