This is somewhat of a mirror from my blog, but I think it’s an interesting subject that could provoke a good discussion.
I read an article today by Michael Y. Park of the epi-log on epicurious.com that the FDA has recently concluded a study of milk and meat from cloned animals and the offspring from cloned animals. The verdict? Cloned food is safe to eat.
The article postulates that soon we might be seeing labels such as “clone-free” appearing on food. As silly as that might initially sound, it’s not unrealistic, considering all the other labels our government provides us.
What do you think? Would you be willing to buy cloned meat? Would you demand a “clone-free” type label? Or do you think meat is meat is meat and it’s not that big of a deal?
