Tastes like chicken? Lab-grown meat is OK for humans, FDA says

By Katie Hunt, CNN
The US Food and Drug Administration has given a safety clearance to lab-grown meat for the first time.
Upside Foods, a California-based company that makes meat from cultured chicken cells, will be able to begin selling its products once its facilities have been inspected by the US Department of Agriculture.

The agency said it had evaluated the information submitted by Upside Foods and it had “no further questions at this time about the firm’s safety conclusion.”

“Advancements in cell culture technology are enabling food developers to use animal cells obtained from livestock, poultry, and seafood in the production of food, with these products expected to be ready for the U.S. market in the near future,” Dr. Robert M. Califf, the FDA’s commissioner of food and drugs and Susan T. Mayne, director of the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), said in a statement.

“The FDA’s goal is to support innovation in food technologies while always maintaining as our first priority the safety of the foods available to U.S. consumers,” the statement added.

Upside Foods did not immediately respond to a request for comment but company founder and CEO Uma Valeti said on Twitter that its cultivated chicken “was one step closer to being on tables everywhere.”

“UPSIDE has received our ‘No Questions Letter’ from the FDA,” Valeti tweeted. “They’ve accepted our conclusion that our cultivated chicken is safe to eat.”

He told CNN earlier this year that the process of making cultivated meat was “similar to brewing beer, but instead of growing yeast or microbes, we grow animal cells.”

“These products are not vegan, vegetarian or plant-based — they are real meat, made without the animal.”

Singapore was the first country to allow the sale of cultured meat. It granted San Francisco start-up Eat Just Inc. regulatory approval in 2020 to sell its laboratory-grown chicken in Singapore.

Advocates hope that cultured meat will reduce the need to slaughter animals for food and help with the climate crisis. The food system is responsible for about a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions, most of which are from animal agriculture.

Although not technically an approval, the FDA said that a thorough pre-market consultation process had been completed. The clearance only applies to food made from cultured chicken cells by Upside but the statement said the FDA “is ready to work with additional firms developing cultured animal cell food.”

Hardly ever see Blackmen up in those buckets.

Some years ago, a Blackman was killed on the job here in N.C.  My suspicious nature wondered if his coworkers somehow allowed it to happen.

General Discussion Forum / Raw Oyster Eaters on Onnidan?

Second person dies after eating raw oysters from Louisiana

A man has died after eating raw oysters at a Florida restaurant, marking the second recent fatality linked to a batch of shellfish from Louisiana.

The man, who has not been identified, enjoyed a meal at the Rustic Inn, a popular spot in Fort Lauderdale famous for its garlic crabs, before falling suddenly ill, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel. His cause of death was determined to be a bacterial infection caused by eating raw oysters.

Gary Oreal, manager of the Rustin Inn, said the man who died previously worked at the restaurant for years.

“Over the course of 60 years, we have served a couple billion oysters, and we never had anyone get sick like this guy did,” he said.

Despite having never experienced a similar incident, Oreal noted that the restaurant has a sign warning patrons about the risks of eating raw shellfish.

“Oysters are top of the mountain for dangerous foods to eat,” the restaurant manager explained. “I have eaten them my entire life, and will continue. But you are putting yourself at risk when you do it.”

Inspectors from the Florida Department of Health combed through the restaurant’s kitchen and examined its oyster inventory the day after the man became ill. Oreal said the eatery passed “with flying colors and we were allowed to continue to sell oysters.”

An oyster contaminated with Vibrio bacteria doesn’t make the shellfish look, smell, or taste any different. According to the Centers for Disease Control, about 80,000 people get vibriosis in the U.S. each year, and about 100 people die from it.

Earlier this month, a man in Pensacola died after contracting the bacteria from oysters he purchased at a market, the Pensacola News Journal reported

In both instances, the shellfish initially came from Louisiana.

Forgot it was on but caught Big Papi’s acceptance speech.

He spoke English and Spanish.  Who was surprised  :shrug: ?

I guess Harold Reynolds was because he had to say,  David shouldn’t be ashamed to speak his native language.

WTF Harold, really?

From Army cook to Best Chef in the Southeast:
 Saltbox Seafood's Moore shares credit for James Beard Award

Durham chef Ricky Moore of Saltbox Seafood said he has yet to sleep after being named Best Chef in the Southeast Monday night at the James Beard Foundation Awards.

Moore spoke to WRAL News from the airport, where he is making his way home from Chicago, site of the awards gala often referred as the "Oscars of Food."

"It was surreal," he said. "As a chef, as a restaurant person, as a chef-owner, as a chef-entrepreneur, these are the times. These are the peaks."

Moore, who was a semi-finalist for the honor in 2020, opened Saltbox Seafood on North Mangum Street in 2012 and closed that location in 2021. A second location followed at 2637 Durham-Chapel Hill Blvd. in 2017, and there a line stretched out the door Tuesday during lunch.

In his acceptance speech, Moore thanked his wife of 30 years, Norma, his children and his restaurant family.

"I have five of the most superior employees one could ever have, and they are all female," Moore said.
