West Virginia House passes a labeling bill aimed at plant-based meat

The state’s House of Delegates passed a bill known as the Truth In Food Labeling Act with overall strong support (86 to 11).

West Virginia is the latest state to enact labeling rules for imitation meat products.

The state’s House of Delegates passed a bill known as the Truth In Food Labeling Act with overall strong support (86 to 11). One delegate Mike Pushkin, said he has bone to pick with the bill.

“I do have a real beef with this bill. It over-regulates such things as Impossible Burger and may violate interstate commerce laws regarding uniform packaging.”

However, those in favor say consumers deserve the right to know what exactly is in their food when they buy it.
