“Lab Grown” Chicken Approved

The federal agency has given approval to two firms – Upside Foods and Good Meat – to produce the faux poultry.

Approval from the Agriculture Department comes after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration confirmed the lab-grown chicken was safe to eat.

This lab-grown chicken won’t be hitting grocery store shelves anytime soon. Instead, it’ll be rolled out in various restaurants.

The lab-grown chicken is actually meat and not a plant-based meat substitute, like the popular Impossible and Beyond brands.
