San Francisco Chronicle Late Edition - - BUSINESS REPORT -

Cal­i­for­nia pros­e­cu­tors say Ama­zon has agreed not to sell foie gras in the state from birds that have been force-fed. State law­mak­ers banned that form of the fatty duck and goose liver del­i­cacy nearly 15 years ago. Los An­ge­les County Dis­trict At­tor­ney Jackie Lacey said Fri­day a state judge ap­proved a set­tle­ment among the on­line re­tailer, her of­fice and dis­trict at­tor­neys in Mon­terey and Santa Clara coun­ties. A spokes­woman for Ama­zon said the com­pany was not com­ment­ing.
