World's First-to-Market Cultivated Meat Receives U.S. FDA ClearanceMarch 29, 2023
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has completed its second pre-market consultation for human food made from cultured animal cells. California-based GOOD Meat, a division of Eat Just, Inc., uses animal cell culture technology to take living cells from chickens and grow the cells in a controlled environment to make cultured animal cell food.
The FDA issued a "no questions" letter to GOOD Meat as part of pre-market consultations for a new kind of meat, poultry, and seafood made from cells instead of raised and slaughtered animals. The letter means that following a careful and rigorous evaluation, the FDA accepted the company's conclusion that its first poultry product, cultivated chicken, is safe to eat.
The United States joins Singapore as a global leader in creating a regulatory pathway to market for real, safe, and high-quality meat produced directly from animal cells. GOOD Meat won several regulatory approvals for its chicken in Singapore in 2020, 2021, and 2023, and is the only cultivated meat producer in the world with the ability to sell to consumers.
