It’s been four years since PETA offered $1 million to the first company to create a commercially-viable laboratory-grown meat that didn’t involve the death of a single animal.

Unfortunately for the scientists involved, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals had set the deadline on claiming the reward as June 30, 2012.
