Nebraska State Sen. Carol Blood has reintroduced her bill to define “meat” as a product derived from animals following a withdrawal of her previous bill. The updated proposal would define meat as “any edible portion of any livestock or poultry carcass or part thereof and does not include insect-based, plant-based, or lab-grown food products.” The bill would also include advertising or selling “an insect-based, a plant-based, or a lab-grown food product as meat” as a deceptive trade practice.
