New York City lawmakers pass bill banning sale of foie gras

New York City lawmakers pass bill banning sale of foie grasNew York City lawmakers on Wednesday passed a bill that bans restaurants and grocery stores from selling foie gras, the fattened liver of a duck or goose considered a culinary delicacy for centuries. Animal welfare activists had campaigned for a ban on the grounds that the methods used to produce foie gras are cruel, involving force-feeding a bird a corn-based mixture through a tube slipped down its throat.

French foie gras makers say they are ready if bird flu returns

French foie gras makers say they are ready if bird flu returnsFrench foie gras makers, still recovering from two severe bird flu crises that ravaged flocks, said on Thursday they would be able to face any new outbreak thanks to strict security measures but prices will remain high to make up for increased costs.
