CFA Asks for Pre-Market Safety Review, Accurate Labeling on Cell-Cultured Seafood Products

CFA submitted the following comments in response to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (“FDA”) request for comments regarding cell-cultured or “lab grown” food products derived from seafood.  The comments acknowledge that cell-cultured products, if made affordable and shown to be safe, could help to address important challenges in the food system. However, accurate and accessible labeling, as well as a comprehensive and transparent pre-market safety review, will serve a critical role in establishing consumer trust.
