Senator Introduces to Crack Down on Fake Meat Labeling

As more plant-based protein products like the Impossible Burger and Beyond Meats make their way onto store shelves and restaurant menus, US senator and cattle rancher Deb Fischer (R-NE) is taking action against these “fake food fads” by introducing “The Real MEAT Act,” which she claims will end the “deceptive labeling” on these “fake meat products.”

Thank you Senator Fischer, for protecting us against this insidious and horrific vegetarian threat to our country’s well-being. And, just for the record, I’m sure the fact you’re a cattle rancher - has absolutely nothing to do with your stance on the issue.

Oh sure, some are gonna argue that the label plainly says in bold letters "burger made from plants,” but that conveniently doesn’t take into account that reading product labels really isn’t one of your typical Trump supporter’s strong suits - not that those folks would even understand what the hell those labels say anyway.

Frankly, I shudder to think how many loyal Trump supporters, hoping to spike their cholesterol levels and ingest more unnecessary antibiotics, were unable to do so because they were deceived into buying a healthier plant-based protein. Thank goodness there still are Republicans around to rectify this kind of injustice!

They feel threatened by anything that challenges or brings attention to the status quo.

I feel really stupid because I didn’t realize I could get better plant-based protein in the meat section until this story broke. I guess it’s not for me anyway.

Maybe a meat diet has contributed to the conservative 'mentality.' How many times can you say conflict of interest. It definitely applies here as the industry has become like coal. Good for nothing. Problem is, the republicans can try to legislate and moan but the plant-based meat industry has taken off and it is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned. Next on the list will be plant-based spam.

Why not focus about the Zeranol that’s put in meats??
They are just killing us slowly.

And while we’re on that subject of clear labelling; when are they going to start labelling processed meats as carcinogenic?

Exactly!!!!!

I'm sure they can come up a new label. I don't like the fake meat thing either. I don't want fake meat, I want no meat.

I do not even like the word meat, all I think about is
the lives that are taken. 😭
As long as is plant based I don’t care about the name.

They waste their time with trivial issues and ignore much more important things!! All for personal gain... This country is getting crazy...
