Foie Gras Ban in California

As many of you may know, foie gras will become illegal for sale and production in the United States. We have been thinking a lot about the implications of the implementation of this state proposition and wanted to share with you resources for pondering and responding to the issue. We have created a new Facebook page, BG Conversations, to discuss topics like this that come up. We want to have an open forum to hash out meat thoughts with our friends.

Below are links to information about the ban and the meat industry and chef response, as well as some links about bans in other areas. To share your thoughts, please go to BG Conversations.
