FDA approves cloned meat

The Washington Post has an article here and an interesting transcript from reporter Rick Weiss (or possibly his clone) on the FDA's approval of the sale of meat from cloned animals. The USDA has asked producers to keep the cloned meat off the market because of consumer concerns.

There's also additional commentary on the FDA's decision thats worth reading at posts here and here courtesy of Critter News and here courtesy of the the Animal Blawg. Also, Food Karma Alert, which I started reading recently, has a post on the decision here and a post linking to a petition drive opposing the decision here.

Finally, be sure to check out Canada's Globe and Mail's report on the decision entitled Clone Appetit.
