why is fois gras not kosher?

Geese are kosher, why isn't a goose's liver kosher? Isn't that all that fois gras is? I know that there exists "kosher fois gras" (as featured in "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy") - but why is this necessary? If cow and chicken livers are kosher and eaten all the time (my grandma can't get enough chicken liver!), why can't I have fois gras?

Thanks!
