Last week, a federal appeals court ruled that California's ban on the sale of foie gras can remain in place. Marcus Henley, the operations manager of New York's Hudson Valley farm, which produces foie gras, said he would continue to fight the law, saying that his lawyers would appeal the latest court ruling. Henley said:
"This isn't like fireworks, nobody is being harmed by foie gras." Henley also noted some California consumers continue to legally order foie gras online.
