Thu, 07 Mar 2019 15:32:30 CST

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today announced a formal agreement to jointly oversee the production of human food products derived from the cells of livestock and poultry.


FSIS and FDA released a formal agreement to address the regulatory oversight of human food produced using this new technology. The formal agreement describes the oversight roles and responsibilities for both agencies and how the agencies will collaborate to regulate the development and entry of these products into commerce. This shared regulatory approach will ensure that cell-cultured products derived from the cell lines of livestock and poultry are produced safely and are accurately labeled.


Shortly after the announcement- Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays talked with Senior Vice President for Governmental Affairs Colin Woodall at the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. Woodall called this good news for the cattle industry with USDA taking on a significant part of the oversight of the production of these protein products- including what they will be called.
