Please do not allow cloned animal products to be entered into the human or animal food chain! My family is disgusted and deeply concerned about the unknown health dangers associated with this virtually unknown bio-science expenditure. Allowing humans and animals to consume any part or product of a cloned animal or its offspring will be an allowance for using American families as laboratory experiments. I demand a halt to consideration of using cloned animals, their products and their offspring for consumption by any living thing. And if you allow any entity to offer cloned animals, their products and/or offspring to be used for consumption, I demand that the product or service (such as breeding) using any portion of cloned animals, products or offspring be identified easily and clearly as from a cloned animal.
With only poor health and ultimate demise cited by the owner of Dolly the cloned sheep and farmers raising cloned animals, how can this decision be responsible or ethical? Please reconsider your assessment for allowance of this potentially harmful product into the food chain. Thank you.
