FDA Okays Lab-Grown Chicken

FDA Okays Lab-Grown Chicken

The Food and Drug Administration has given the go-ahead to a lab-grown chicken product from GOOD Meat, and the company announced that chef José Andrés will serve it in one of his DC restaurants soon. But not so fast — the product has to be cleared by the U.S. Department of Agriculture first. GOOD Meat has been serving its lab-grown chicken in high-end Singapore restaurants since 2020.

This is the second synthetic chicken product cleared by the FDA. The first was from UPSIDE Foods back in November. There may be as many as 99 companies trying to develop cell-cultured meat. While the market for these food products is uncertain, this is a great time to be selling the bioreactors in which the stuff is “grown” and the nutrients that “feed” it.


“A second lab-grown chicken producer got a step closer to hitting the shelves,” Julia Malleck, Quartz

“Lab-grown meat moves closer to American dinner plates,” By Leah Douglas, Reuters
