The Supreme Court is allowing California to continue enforcing a law that bans the sale of foie gras.
The justices on rejected a challenge to the law from producers of the delicacy in New York and Canada.
Foie gras is the fatty liver of a force-fed duck. The California law bars state farmers from force-feeding birds with a tube, the way foie gras is made. The law also bans the sale of foie gras in California. (India Bans Foie Gras, a Controversial Duck Liver Delicacy.)
Lower courts in California earlier dismissed efforts to block the law from being enforced.
The case is Association des Eleveurs du Quebec, 13-1313.
