Ama­zon won’t sell cer­tain foie gras in Cal­i­for­nia

The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

Ama­zon has agreed not to sell foie gras in Cal­i­for­nia from birds that have been force-fed and will pay civil penal­ties, in­ves­tiga­tive costs and resti­tu­tion as part of a law­suit set­tle­ment, a pros­e­cu­tor said Fri­day.

The suit filed by prose­cu­tors in Los An­ge­les, Mon­terey and Santa Clara coun­ties ac­cused the re­tailer of vi­o­lat­ing a 2004 state law ban­ning sales of the fatty duck and goose liver del­i­cacy if it was pro­duced by force-feed­ing birds.

A judge ap­proved the deal Thurs­day be­tween Ama­zon and the three prose­cu­tors, Los An­ge­les County District At­tor­ney Jackie Lacey said.
