Misbranding Nonmeat And Imported And Artificial Meat


Current law prohibits selling meat or meat products that are imported without the label indicating the fact of importation. The bill expands this to cover any meat derived from animals that were not born, raised, and harvested exclusively in the United States. The bill provides that food is misbranded as "meat" or a cut of meat if it does not come from animals and that lab-grown meat is misbranded as "meat" or a cut of meat unless labeled as "lab-grown" or "artificially cultured". (Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
