Alabama signs Bill SB23 into law banning sale and production of cultivated meat

Regulation/policy

  • Alabama's Governor Kay Ivey signed Bill SB23 into law banning the sale and production of cultivated meat in the state. Violation of the bill will carry a Class C misdemeanor.

  • Contravening this law can result in a penalty of three months in prison and a USD 500 fine. However, higher education institutes and government departments engaged in cell-cultured meat research are exempt from this.

  • Analyst QuickTake: Bill SB23 was proposed to the Senate in February 2024 and passed without any opposition. This latest development joins Bill SB 1084 , recently signed into legislation in Florida, making Alabama the second state to ban the sale and production of cultivated meats. If more states follow suit, it may pose a threat to the viability of US cell-cultured meat companies despite approvals from the USDA.
