Chefs angry – California ban on foie gras upheld

Recommended Posts

(Los Angeles Times) California may once again scrape foie gras off restaurant plates, after judges ruled in favor of a ban on the delicacy made by force feeding ducks and geese.


The decision Friday by a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals removes a roadblock to enforcing a 2004 ban that has been idled for more than half the time it has been on the books.


Animal rights groups applauded the action, while chefs who serve the dish reacted with anger and confusion.


Ingrid Newkirk, president of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, said in a statement that “the Champagne corks are popping.”
