PETA sues California restaurant for violating foie gras ban

Restaurant served dish as a complimentary side

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is taking the California ban on foie gras very seriously. And the animal rights organization proved that it is willing to go to court to keep restaurants compliant.

Yesterday, PETA filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court against Hot’s Kitchen, claiming the restaurant is violating the state ban on foie gras by offering the “fat liver” delicacy as a complimentary side to its popular “THE Burger” menu item. Foie gras was banned in California in July.
