Title: NCBA on Fake Meat News: "Step in the Right Direction, More Work Remains"

WASHINGTON (Nov. 16, 2018) - Colin Woodall, Senior Vice President of Government Affairs, today issued the following statement regarding the announced plan regarding how USDA and FDA would regulate lab-produced fake meat:

“This announcement that USDA would have primary jurisdiction over the most important facets of lab-produced fake meat is a step in the right direction, but there is still a lot of work to do on this issue to ensure that real beef producers and consumers are protected and treated fairly. We look forward to continuing our work with the Administration and Congress as this moves forward, and we continue to encourage producers to file official comments with USDA and FDA between now and December 26th.”
