A bill has recently been signed into law in Oklahoma that will prohibit deceptive or misleading labeling of meat products, and in essence prevents cell cultured or plant based products from using meat terms.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will both be involved in regulatory oversight of cell-culture food originating from livestock and poultry, also known as "fake meat."
However, has there been any progress on other trade deals? With the markets swinging up and down during Monday's trading session, what is happening?
AgDay and U.S. Farm Report reporter Betsy Jibben has the story.
Missouri might be the first state to enact legislation that requires labeling of plant-based and lab-grown meat to be clear when compared to meat from livestock. But why and how did this legislative effort begin?
The latest monthly trade data has been tabulated – for August – and U.S. beef trade continued its impressive performance with monthly exports up 9 percent and year-to-date export totals up 14.2% year over year.
Lab-grown meat startups that rely on animal cells to produce beef, poultry and seafood products have caught the eye of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which has begun the process of regulating the industry.
