Farewell Foie Gras (and 5 Other Banned Foods)

———

New laws are making it more difficult for some Americans to indulge in their favorite eats.

Last weekend, California put into effect a ban on foie gras — a fattened duck or goose liver dish that animal-welfare advocates say is inhumane because it requires the force-feeding of animals. In New York, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has proposed a ban on sugary drinks exceeding 16 ounces, while Massachusetts recently passed a law, taking effect in August, that will limit students’ access to junk food during the school day.

Those looking for restricted foods may not be totally out of luck, however. Most laws and food codes are at the state, or even county, level. They’re also difficult to enforce, say food experts. “Any time there’s an attempt to ban a food, it just makes the food sexier, like Prohibition,” says Douglas Powell, a professor of diagnostic medicine and pathobiology at Kansas State University, where he runs the food safety blog “Barfblog.” That leads to grassroots groups that fight the legislation, and efforts among eaters to find ways to still buy restricted foods.

Diners may not even have to travel to another state to indulge in their favorite banned food. Experts say they can often find a restaurant or supplier willing to bend the rules. Of course, health-safety concerns may make those moves a bad idea, Powell warns. Unlike foie gras, which was banned for animal rights concerns, many foods including rare burgers and raw milk are outlawed with the aim of protecting consumers from food-borne illness. For example, food safety officials dub summer “E. coli season” for the usual rise in infections suspected to stem from undercooked burgers and other foods. In June, the government began testing ground meat for six new strains, including one that infected 15 people in six states during April and May. (The CDC has not identified the source of the infection.) Food-borne illnesses that can be mild in adults are often more serious in children, who are often the main target of protective bans, Powell says.

As some Californians lament the loss of foie gras from upscale restaurants across the state, here are five other foods consumers may not see on the menu, depending on where they live and travel:
