I strongly object to the introduction of cloned animals and their by-products into my food supply. But if indeed these animals & animal products are to be introduced into our food supply then the very least I would expect is that they would be labeled as such. If they are indeed as safe to consume as you purport them to be, then what harm could it do to simply label it as coming from a cloned animal? In my opinion, the only possible harm it could do would be to the producers of such animals and their profit margins. It is my understanding that the FDA is in existence to protect and assure the safety of the food and drug sources of the American people, not to protect the bottom line of large corporate farms.
Thank you for the opportunity to express my opinion,
Pamela A. Roberts
