Although thorough FDA studies have concluded that cloned meat and dairy products are perfectly safe, I strongly feel that there should be strict documentation of the husbandry of these animals and that special notices be required on beef, dairy, poultry and other animal products sent into the consumer arena...and products purchased for use in the restaurant/dining sector also have to display signage on their menus that their dishes contained cloned animal products. There should be a way to track ALL cloned animals and their offspring so that if problems develop 20-30 years down the road they can be tracked to the specific animal. At first blush...the FDA ruling, without
special notification, disturbed me to the point where I am seriously considering becoming a vegan so that I will not come into contact with a product that may potentially harm me 20 years down the road.
