Alabama state capitol building.


Alabama became the 22nd state to join the Union way back in 1819, and has since become one of the larger states in the southeastern part of the United States by population, ranked 24th in the U.S. just ahead of Louisiana.

Earlier this month, Governor Kay Ivey signed a bill into law that could set a precedent across the country: a ban on the sale of lab-grown meat.

The news came via the website Wiredas a new law was passed with surprising consequences for possible offenders.

Alabama’s decision to ban lab grown meat came on the heels of a similar bill passed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

The Alabama bill was first proposed by Senator Jack Williams, who serves as the vice chair of the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry Committee. It passed the Alabama House with 85 votes for and 14 against, and the Senate with 32 votes for and none against. It will take effect in October 2024.


Cultivated Meat Companies Argue Against Bans 

Companies that produce cultivated meat have argued strongly against the bans according to the Wired article stating that state governments should not have the ability to decide what people shouldn’t be allowed to eat.

They say their products could produce a meat substitute that has a lower environmental impact and less animal cruelty.’

The Alabama bill allows for university and government departments to conduct research into cultivated meat.

Critics of the cultivated meat industry note that its products are often produced with genetically modified yeast and have not been tested for long-term safety effects on humans as is the case with most genetically modified food companies and products.

“They throw a couple animal cells in there, throw some chemicals in there, some ingredients and boom: you get a chicken leg out,” he said.

The genetically modified, lab created food industry has been widely criticized for lack of transparency and labeling of its ingredients.

The bill was supported by Freedom Health Alabama which referred to lab grown meat as ‘Franken-meat.’
