Several states are taking aim at cultivated meat and its potential impact on U.S. agriculture.

A Wisconsin lawmaker filed a bill to require cultivated meat to include a label specifically defining the word “animal.” It lists that definition as mammal, bird, reptile, amphibian, or mollusk. The bill’s sponsor says words get changed over time and they are being misused in food products. Fines would range from $100 to $500 and could include jail time.

Florida and Arizona have proposed similar laws aimed at cultivated or cultured meat products.
