Is Foie Gras Illegal in the US?

California first banned the production and sale of foie gras by force-feeding in 2004. This law prohibited any products made by force-feeding birds with the intent to enlarge their livers from being produced or sold in the state starting in 2012. While individuals are still permitted to purchase foie gras out of state and consume it, no California business is allowed to sell the product.
