Foie gras ban re­in­stated

Sunday Mail - - WORLD -

A FED­ERAL ap­peals court has re­vived a Cal­i­for­nia state law ban­ning the sale of foie gras made from force-fed birds.

The 9th US Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals yes­ter­day over­turned a Jan­uary 2015 lower court rul­ing strik­ing down the law, say­ing the judge erred in con­clud­ing that the ban con­flicted with a fed­eral law gov­ern­ing the pro­duc­tion of poul­try prod­ucts.

Cal­i­for­nia’s law pro­hibits the sale of birds that are forcefed to en­large their liv­ers to be used as foie gras.
