Consumers Union has announced the results of a phone survey asking consumers how meat products created from cultured animal cells in a laboratory should be labeled. The survey purportedly found that 49 percent of respondents indicated that the products should be labeled as meat with an explanation of its production and 40 percent answered that the products should be labeled as “something other than meat,” while five percent of respondents said that they should be labeled as meat without further explanation.

The survey also reportedly found that “lab-grown meat” and “artificial or synthetic meat” were the most popular answers about what the products should be called, while “cultured meat,” “clean meat” and “in vitro meat” were less popular.
