The ad is running nationally on Fox News Channel and is the latest in a sustained, six-figure effort to address consumer concerns surrounding this experimental product.

Additional elements of CEW’s lab-grown meat campaign include:

  • An animated explainer video that addresses how lab-grown meat is manufactured
  • Paid digital ads on X, Facebook, and TikTok
  • The website LabMeat.com, which explains the industry’s use of “immortalized cells” in the production of lab-grown meat and highlights the lack of long-term health studies

CEW Executive Director Jack Hubbard had this to say:

“The lab-grown meat sector will continue to face skepticism as consumers learn more about the chemicals, growth factors, and ‘immortalized cells’ used in manufacturing. Our campaign aims to help the public learn the truth behind this experimental product, how it’s made, and the lack of long-term nutritional and health studies.”
