Foie Gras Bans
The Israeli Supreme Court ruled that foie gras production violates the country’s cruelty-to-animals laws, and the practice is now banned in Israel. Germany and other European nations have prohibited the production of foie gras, and force-feeding birds is prohibited in the U.K. and in Switzerland, where foie gras packages are required to carry labels to inform consumers that the birds were force-fed. The European Union is working to phase out the force-feeding of birds entirely in its member countries by 2020.
India has banned the import of foie gras.
