(US/ca) Animal Rights Groups To Protest Foie Gras Eating Contest
SANTA ANA (CBSLA.com) -- Animal rights groups plan to protest at a Santa Ana restaurant Saturday night during a scheduled foie gras eating contest, which would test California's ban on the delicacy.
Playground, located at 220 E. Fourth Street, is hosting the "food eating challenge," but the restaurant's manager said they're not sponsoring it.
The law banning production and sales of foie gras, usually made by force-feeding ducks and geese corn through tubes in their throats, went into effect July 1. Restaurants can face fines of up to $1,000.
