IN late October, New York City decided to ban the sale of foie gras, a famous French (法國的) delicacy. The law will go into effect in 2022. The city is known for its fine dining, and the dish is popular in many New York City restaurants.
Foie gras is made from the liver of a goose or duck that has been fed a lot of corn. This makes their liver fatty; in fact, the name of the dish is the phrase ‘fatty liver’ in French. The dish is actually not very healthy. Not only that, many animal rights groups say forcing birds to eat until they have such large livers is inhumane.
Under the new law, anyone caught and convicted of selling foie gras will be fined US$500 to US$2,000 (about HK$3,900 to HK$16,000). The biggest foie gras producer in the US, Hudson Valley Foie Gras, said that it will fight the ban in the courts
