Foie Gras has been banned in California since July 1, 2012 making it illegal to serve or produce this dish in the state of California. However, some businesses are finding the loopholes and still serving this dish. From clever wordplay to customers providing their own product for chefs to prepare the foie gras, this ban can not completely get rid of the product.
Places such as the Presido Social Club in San Francisco are still serving their foie gras being that the "law doesn't apply to them because the restaurant is on land administered by a federal agency". Experts in the legal field state that this club is safe from any lawsuits being that this ban doesn't effect federal property.
No matter what this dish is loved by many people from California to France and will not be banned completely anywhere. Even though this is banned in California, foie gras is not banned from places such as Europe or Canada.
