USDA Grants Approval For Lab-Grown Chicken To Be Served In Restaurants
Multiple companies have been trying to launch a new way of meat and poultry production that would reduce animal harm and the environmental effects of selling meat for quite some time. It looks like we’re finally there, America. Are you ready to sink your teeth into lab-grown chicken?
CNBC reports that the U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved the sale of lab-grown or “cultivated chicken” that doesn’t involve slaughtering birds. The lab-grown chicken is still made from animal cells so it’s actually meat and not a plant-based meat substitute, like the popular Impossible and Beyond brands.
The federal agency has given approval to two California firms – Upside Foods and Good Meat – to produce this new kind of poultry product. This move comes after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration confirmed the lab-grown chicken from both companies was safe to eat months ago.
Outside of the U.S., only Singapore has issued approval for the sale of cell-cultured meat. The new cultivated chicken products won’t be hitting grocery store shelves in the U.S. anytime soon. Instead, they’ll first be rolled out in various restaurants. When you see lab-grown meat on a restaurant menu for the first time, will you be apprehensive about trying it?
