Pony Party, Would you?

Because we KNOW we can absolutely trust the FDA….right????

Just over a decade after scientists cloned the first animal, the last major barrier to selling meat and milk from clones has fallen: The U.S. government declared this food safe Tuesday. Now, will people buy it?

Consumer anxiety about cloning is serious enough that several major food companies, including the big dairy producer Dean Foods Co. and Smithfield Foods Inc., say they aren’t planning to sell products from cloned animals.

I don’t seem to have any anxiety over cloned animals.  If they’re yummy, I’ll eat them.  You??

The article goes on to explain that a cloned cow costs ten to twenty times what a natural cow does, so it is unlikely they would be used for food themselves.  They would probably be used for breeding.  However, the producer would not be required to label products from cloned animals any differently.  At least that what AP says about it.

Suddenly I’m craving the pot roast hash breakfast from Bob Evans’….  😉

  1. everybody is still asleep today?

    I am still sick, since like October. Throw in a knee operation in November, and there you go. That’s been my fall and early winter.

    So have a good day everyone! I will be sneezing and coughing and generally miserable while trying to write. I am getting behind in my writing.
