Should Cloned Animal Products Be Labelled?

The Associated Press reports that when the government approves consumption of food from cloned animals, and approval is expected within the next 12 months, The Food and Drug Administration isn't planning to require any special labeling.

The theory is that if the food's safe to eat, its source doesn't need to be identified. The only way that consumers will be able to make sure that they don't buy cloned products is by looking for the organic green seal as organic animal products will not come from cloned animals.

Personally I want to know if the animal products I am buying come from cloned animals. What do you think?

I don't eat meat, but I definitely think people should be allowed to know what they are eating!!

I want the labels, I'm still on the fence about this :? and when the difinitive conclusion is known - I want to know what the impact is on me - past, present and future. "Here chickie, chickie, chickie... " I mean, "Here cloned chickie, cloned chickie, cloned chickie..."

There needs to be a label for this.

I think consumers have a right to know how animal products have been processed. And adding a label defining that the product came from a cloned animal should always be included.

I dont care. Cloned meat isnt any more dangerous. Seriously, they're warning labels on alcohol and tobacco (things that have been PROVEN to be dangerous) and people still use them. Do we really think that wasting money putting a label on cloned food is worth it?

Going vegan upon hearing this news. I mean damn, this is just the last straw. I'm not some heart bleeding liberal animal lover or peta member, just someone that wants to know what I'm ingesting and putting on my family's dinner plates. So the USDA says its safe huh. Well, slap my jiggliness... I guess there's no need to worry then! All you meat lovers who support the farmers and equate eating steak with American patriotism, you can have my share! Enjoy the tasty goodness of any meat you eat, cloned or otherwise. You'll get no judgement from me... I know meat tastes good. But I'm officially out of the game.

Hmmm...guess I would quit eating meat, then! I'm not very educated on this subject, but I don't see why we NEED to clone animals for meat...are they not gettin' busy anymore?? And...Vaccinations scare created meat for SURE would. The FDA is a great administration to have (Can you imagine life without them?) but they haven't always been right about stuff, you know?
