I would like to see labeling which includes the information that any animal cloned or its offspring to produce milk or meat product is used. I personally do not want for me, my wife, and my children, to consume cloned food items. Due to the fact that my knowledge of the subjest is not great, but cloning has not been around for a very long time. When one considers the amount of time that other items are tested, I think we are rushing this. To have this more thoroughly tested I believe that race, gender, age, existing medical conditions or the interaction of medicine people are currently taking needs to be included. If my request for more thorough testing will not be considered, PLEASE, I ask, have the companies label there products CLEARLY so that I as an American consumer may have my freedom to NOT purchase any of these products. I also ask that, as you, the main leaders of safety in our great nation, consider all the different aspects of this subject, please think of the future for our children, so that we do not, in the years ahead regret this decision. I truely thank for this opportunity to express my thoughts and concerns.
