FSIS Solicits Comments to Guide Labeling of Cell-Cultured Meat and Poultry

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service has published an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking, soliciting comments to guide the agency’s future labeling requirements for cell-cultured animal products. The FSIS and FDA agreed in 2019 that both agencies will retain regulatory oversight of certain aspects of the production and distribution of products produced using animal cell culture technology, determining that FSIS will have authority over the labeling process. FSIS is accepting comments through November 2, 2021.
