As to the introduction of cloned animal meat into the consumer market, although there may be no risk to the consumption of the meat, I strongly believe the consumer should have the right to know what type of meat he/she is purchasing. This at least should be part of the initial process in which new "product" should be introduced into the consumer market, at least initially. Once acceptance is gained (i.e. 3 months), the labeling may and should be done away with. Suggestions can be that the label indicating cloned meat is placed on the package or there should be an ingredients label should indicate that the package contains cloned meat (or the source should be indicated). Thank you.
