Lab-grown meat isn’t on store shelves yet, but some states have already banned it

(AP) — Lab-grown meat is not currently available in any grocery stores or restaurants in the US. If some MPs have their way, it will never be.

Earlier this month, both Florida and Alabama banned the sale of cultured meat and seafood, which are grown from animal cells.

In Iowa, the governor signed a bill banning schools from buying lab-grown meat.

Federal lawmakers are also looking to restrict it. It is not clear how far these efforts will go.

Some meat companies say they are considering legal action, and some states have dropped proposed bans after lawmakers argued they would restrict consumer choices.

The US first approved the sale of lab-grown meat a year ago.
