Clone-burgers, anyone??

in a not-unexpected decision, the

F.D.A. Says Food From Cloned Animals Is Safe - New York Times
After years of debate, the Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday declared that food from cloned animals and their progeny is safe, removing the last government hurdle before meat and milk derived from copies of prize dairy cows and superior hogs can be sold at grocery stores.
curiously, within the same week France prohibited the use of genetically modified corn developed by monsanto. there are many of the same concerns among other members of the european union, so don't be surprised if the other countries join in the ban.

is this good news for the chicken biz?? food for thought?
