The meat industry is facing some tough competition these days. Delicious, healthy, and cruelty-free plant-based meat options have become a staple at most grocery stores and many restaurants, while new companies are breaking ground and creating “clean meat”—real meat without the suffering and death.
The U.S. Cattlemen’s Association, a beef-industry front group, is so afraid of this competition that they petitioned the United States Department of Agriculture to prohibit plant-based and clean meat companies from using the words “beef” or “meat” on product labels.
The USDA is now accepting public comments on this petition. Please use our simple form below to tell the USDA that restricting labels on plant-based foods and clean meat stifles competition, inhibits progress, and is both unnecessary and wrong.
Unique comments are more effective, so please consider personalizing your message before submitting. The deadline to submit comments is May 17, 2018, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, so act now to make sure your voice is heard!
