Mmm, Tastes Like Cloned Chicken

The New York Times serves up a tasty article on a new system to track cloned livestock. The program has been developed by companies "responding to concerns in the food industry" -- particularly those regarding retailers who promise that their products do not contain any milk or meat from cloned animals, according to the article. "The program comes as the Food and Drug Administration is thought to be preparing to lift a voluntary moratorium that has kept milk and meat from cloned cows, pigs and goats out of the food supply."
