Foie Gras ban in California

8:27 pm on 3 July 2012

California has imposed a ban on the French delicacy foie gras, which is made from the fat and livers of force-fed ducks and geese.

Many chefs and food lovers are saddened by the foie gras prohibition, but the ABC reports it is a victory for animal rights activists who say the force feeding is cruel.

Foie gras is already banned in several European countries and some parts of the Middle East.
