There’s a more humane way to cook lobster — and in Switzerland, it’s now the law.
The Switzerland’s government has barred the culinary practice of throwing lobsters into boiling hot water while they are alive, The Guardian reported. The government said the crustaceans must be “stunned” before being boiled.
“The practice of plunging live lobsters into boiling water, which is common in restaurants, is no longer permitted,” the government order stated. “Lobsters will now have to be stunned before they are put to death.”
