YOUR SOURCE ON FOOD LITIGATION AND REGULATION

In recent months, questions about the potential future marketing of what will be termed herein “cell-cultured meat” (CCM) have moved outside the confines of biotech laboratories and tech funders’ boardrooms and caught the attention of both regulators and a much broader segment within the general public. As the regulatory future of such products starts to come into focus, debates and discussions have been generated within the food industry over three interlocking issues:

  1. Jurisdiction: What federal agency should be responsible for overseeing such products?
  2. Oversight: How should such products be regulated?
  3. Labeling: How are they to be identified to the consumer?

For a more comprehensive discussion of the emerging regulatory landscape for CCM read the article by Morgan Lewis lawyers Robert Hibbert and Amaru Sanchez in Food Quality & Safety magazine.
