Rep. Johnson Co-Sponsoring Bill Labeling Plant-Based Meat as “Imitation”

The Real Meat Act proposed that beef not made from cows, be labeled “imitation” before or after the name of on the front package.
In a statement, Rep. Johnson says, “a plant-based creation isn’t the same as South Dakota beef. It’s a benefit of consumers and producers alike when folks have a better understanding of where their food comes.”
