PETA targets La Folie for allegedly selling foie gras
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- PETA is targeting a San Francisco restaurant accused of selling foie gras, despite a statewide ban. An ABC7 News I-Team investigation this week revealed that La Folie was secretly selling foie gras.
La Folie gets its foie gras from Hudson Valley Foie Gras in New York which claims to be humane.
PETA claims the farm is still cruelly force-feeding the birds.
The organization has sent a letter to Roland Passot, the owner of La Folie telling him they will pursue legal avenues if they continue to violate California's ban on foie gras.
