Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., introduced a bill that would give the USDA the primary responsibility to manage, label and inspect lab-grown meat and poultry marketed in the country. "My bill essentially codifies the terms of" an agreement between Food Safety & Inspection Service and the FDA, says Hyde-Smith, adding, "The fact that FDA and USDA have agreed to identify necessary changes to statutory authority confirms the need for a legislative fix, as I've proposed."
