Animal activists score victory against foie gras with major hotel

A campaign to ban foie gras around the world is sizzling up after a major hotel chain's Maui location succumbed to pressure from animal rights groups and pulled the French delicacy off its menu last week.

The Four Seasons Resort in Maui removed foie gras from a posh $350-a-plate dinner slated for May 6, after the Animal Protection & Rescue League (APRL) applied pressure to the hotel.
Animal rights groups like the APRL have been taking their fight one restaurant and establishment at a time. Celebrity chefs like Wolfgang Puck and Charlie Trotter refrain from putting foie gras on their menu, and major retailers like Whole Foods and Costco have also banned it. It's currently banned in 15 countries.

The removal comes following a proposal to outlaw foie gras in Hawaii last year.
