SD Gov. Signs Law that Targets Companies Marketing ‘Fake Meat’

PIERRE, S.D. – Gov. Kristi Noem has signed legislation that requires “fake meat” products to be correctly labeled, hoping to reduce the impact of lab-cultured products on the local beef market.

A product is misbranded if it intentionally labels products in a false, deceptive or misleading manner that misrepresents it as meat or a meat byproduct, the law states.

Noem signed the bill Monday and it will go into effect July 1, the American News reported. Her press secretary, Kristin Wileman, said the measure correctly defines real meat.
