Huge news broke within the past hour: America’s foie gras industry has just suffered a crushing blow. Its top producer has been hit with a $50,000 fine, and now has a sword hanging over its head in the event it commits future water pollution violations.
As I said, this story just broke; I’ve got the sense there are deeper consequences to the foie gras industry that will become evident over the next few weeks. (Thanks, Paul.) Link.
