What right do farmers have first of all cloning anamials? There is no advantage to cloning except birth defects the anamial still has to be born and grow be fed etc. so the point of not doing it the natural way is? The mere fact you have the NERVE to not even consider labeling it is unheard of, EVERYTHING should be labeled as to where it comes from and ANY alteration to it's natural makeup. If Organic, imatation (such as the crab meat you deem it no important to label as such)or if it comes from another country. Sorry if people don't believe the FDA anymore they have become inapt in their job. People have the right to know the orgin and any altered form their food has had added or deleted. This includes cloning. I personally don't feel it's safe and do not wish to perchase any let alone eat cloned meat. Fact is I seldom buy fruit or vegetables out of season the new araidation makes it look fine but when you bite into it it's rotten and tasteless. It's no wonder Americans are over weight, the only time we are sure of what we are eating is when it processed foods. I do not care to eat or attempt to eat cloned meat, feed it to my kids, grandkids, or any other member of my family. I have the right to know what I am buying as does my butcher. Cloned meat is not natural, I don't buy it tastes the same and is of the same quality thats bull. I buy organic milk it can not compare to the over processed milk. I may buy less but eat better. It is time the government get off their rears and go back to basics, and morals you know the ones you, your parents and their parent were broght up on and quit messing with the food chain of Americans. Also not anything that is not organic should also be labeled as such with all altering facts listed.
