Everything but the kitchen sheep

The US FDA on Thursday said that cloned animals (including cattle, pigs and goats, but not sheep for some reason) can be sold for human consumption. While the ruling still has to go through a public comment period before it can be made legal, It's a safe bet that it will slide right on through. While this will probably help the sale of certified organic meats, a large majority of people in the US, especially those who are already disadvantaged when it comes to access to fresh foods, will be subjected to this decision without being given the chance to make their own choice. If the FDA ruling that "no unique risks for human food consumption" holds, there will certainly be no labeling required.
