I consider it my sacred duty to visit each of these places in the next 30 days and to order foie gras. My reservations have been made and I have put deposits down for my meal.

So, shove a tube down the throat of a duck, force feed it for 2 weeks and then present it's artificially enlarged liver on a plate with some toast. Normally an enlarged liver would be an indicator of some sort of disease, but in this case it's a delicacy. Sounds yummy.

Thats just nasty. Their was a ban for a reason--cause it's nasty. You people are pathetic barbarians--but I guess you're to dumb to know it.

The negative commenters are so uninformed. It is natural for a migratory or hibernating animal to enlarge their own liver. That is why ducks, geese and bears can take it. They gorge themselves. The ducks and geese also have a rough and textured gullet, allowing them to eat fish whole, so the tube does not hurt them. If you ever go to a foie gras farm, you will see the ducks run to the farmer at feeding time, and in no pain at all. Now, should you wish to venture to a chicken factory farm, that is a completely different story. Thank you Chicago, I can finally move back home.

Typical foie gras production involves force-feeding birds more food than they would eat in the wild, and much more than they would voluntarily eat domestically
