USDA, FDA to Split Lab-grown Meat Oversight

November 20, 2018 from the Specialty Food News and BeefMagazine.com:

"The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will jointly oversee the production of cell-cultured food products derived from livestock and poultry, according to the agencies. An agreement between the agencies allows FDA to oversee cell collection, cell bank and cell growth, and differentiation, while USDA will oversee the production and labeling of food products derived from the cells of livestock and poultry."
"The administration does not believe new legislation is needed because the agencies have the statutory authority necessary to appropriately regulate cell-cultured food products derived from livestock and poultry."
