Cloned Meat and Milk Coming to a Store Near You!

With meat and milk from cloned animals expected to be allowed into the U.S. food supply in a matter of months, and their offspring already permitted, consumers have two choices.

These bulls were cloned from Panhandle Slim, the 1997 Professional Bull Riders bucking bull of the year. Cloning advocates say cloned animals are to be used for breeding, not eating, and that it's unlikely a cloned animal would reach the food supply.

They can ignore the controversy and chow down with abandon, or they can quiz each of their grocery stores, restaurants and dinner hosts about their policy on using food developed with cloning.

That's because, unless Congress intervenes, regulators have decided that the products require no special labeling.
