Arizona proposes two bills aimed at regulating cultivated meat

More states are proposing legislation to regulate cultivated meat.

Arizona lawmakers have put forward two bills that would regulate how consumers interact with these products. One would make it illegal to label a product that is not derived from livestock or poultry as meat. This applies to meat made in labs and products from plants. The other would prohibit the sale or production of any cell-cultured animal product for human or animal consumption.

Florida has proposed similar bills.
