Issue Areas/Comments
It is my opinion that all cloned meat or meat derived from offspring of cloned animals needs to be marked and labeled as such on food packaging. The American Public has a right to know what it is eating. Please, do not allow the use cloned animals or their offspring for consumption. It has been proven that gentetic variety is a safty net for disastrous situations. Cloning animals will be setting us up for disaster. Cloning meat may further hurt our competition in world markets. We do not need our meat closed off to the entire world's economy. Finally, I will cease to buy meat from companies that use any form of cloned meat and/or refuse to have it labeled.
