California Foie Gras Ban Prompts French Call to Retaliate

A political official in southern France is urging the nation’s restaurants to stop serving California wines in response to the U.S. state’s ban on foie gras.

California banned the sale and production of the French delicacy, a fatty goose or duck liver made by force-feeding the animals, under a law that took effect July 1. Most restaurants in the state have removed the item from their menus.
