Cindy Hyde-Smith on Technology

 

 


Favors regulation of lab grown meat products

Hyde-Smith introduced the Cell-Cultured Meat and Poultry Regulation Act of 2019 that would codify the responsibilities of the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) over food products grown in laboratories from animal cell cultures. "Our federal food safety laws need to be updated to address the scientific effort to create imitation meat in laboratories," said Hyde-Smith. "American consumers deserve to know the food they eat is unadulterated, wholesome, and properly labeled, and the federal agencies responsible for these guarantees deserve clear direction from Congress over jurisdiction.
