    Older English used the word "meat" to mean "food" or "meal", so....what precedent are we wanting to follow here?

    "The Good Food Institute, the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri, the Animal Legal Defense Fund and plant-based food company Tofurkey have filed a federal lawsuit challenging the Missouri law . They argue the law unfairly stifles competition."

    Honest advertising does not unfairly stifle competition. It stifles deception.

    They need to make an argument why tofu is meat as per the current definition rather than trying to redefine the term 'meat' to mean something new.
