Cloned food. Is it kosher?

I came across the most shocking news story that I have ever seen. You probably didn't get a chance to read this most pivotal of stories. Why? Because I just happened upon this story on Christmas Day when I accidentally knocked over an issue of the Los Angeles Times to some random page and it read: "FDA to OK Cloned Meat, Milk. Labeling Unnecessary." What, you didn't happen to read the LA Times on Christmas Day? There was supposed to be a 3-month public discussion about this but since it is now April, I can assume that the hamburger you are eating right now is cloned. Forget the fact that most Americans are against cloning PERIOD or that 90 percent of cloned products have to be discarded because they are genetically defective or forget the fact that lab animals have developed organ failure and anomalies after eating cloned meat or, even, forget the fact that the Bush FDA has overseen Vioxx deaths, a 50 percent increase in contaimenated foods (spinach, peanut butter, etc), and a whole lot of dead dogs. No, forget that. What I am wondering is if cloned meat is Kosher? I'm a Jew but I am not particularly kosher. I would just like to know if there is any way that I can avoid eating science experiments or do I have to become a farmer?
