PETA sues eatery for serving banned delicacy - Los Angeles
Subtle difference, eatery claims delicacy is served, but not sold.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals is suing a Hermosa Beach eatery for serving a banned delicacy. The restaurant attempted to skirt the law by changing the name of the offering, according to PETA.
However, Hot's Kitchen in Hermosa Beach is still serving foie gras according to PETA. The restaurant simply changed the name of the meal from "Foie Gras Burger" to "THE Burger" and still serves the foie gras on the side.
This has PETA and other animal advocates upset.
Hot's Kitchen does not dispute that they sell the delicacy, but contends that their foie gras is humanely produced. The parent company of Hot's Kitchen, Hot's Restaurant Group, is suing along with foie gras producers to get an injunction against the law, arguing that it is too vague.
Last July a manager for the restaurant said the law does not prohibit the serving of the delicacy, only the selling of it. Since it is served on the side, rather than sold, they claim the practice is legal.
Naturally, this is not what the law intends, however it may promote the claim that the law itself is too vague to enforce.
