Take Foie gras OFF the menu

Take Foie gras OFF the menu

    1. Petition by

      Fighters for Animal Rights

A local restaurant sells Foie Gras as a mousse "delicacy".

The dish  is a ASSIETTE “GOURMET”, meaning its a single dish that has different foods. The dish name though is "Jacques Special" and one of the items on this "gourmet" dish is Foie gras mousse.

As we know, there is NOTHING delicate about Foie gras because it's made through a process of having a large metal pole being shoved down a helpless duck's neck and force fed. The ducks are often confined in cages and can't move. They are unable to fight back when they are being force fed, the sale of foie gras for human consumption violates the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) which states that they prohibit diseased, or "manipulated" meat from entering the food supply.
Foie gras is the diseased liver of ducks and geese that is the result of painful force-feeding. Tubes are forcefully shoved down the birds' throats and they are forced to consume more food than they would ever possibly consume naturally. The result: their livers become diseased and engorged, growing up to ten times their normal size.
Scientific studies have shown that people who consume foie gras are at a higher risk for a variety of physical ailments, including type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer's disease.


As we know shoving a metal pole down a ducks throat is not humane. Please help me in stopping this establishment from selling foie gras. If we can get this one restaurant to stop selling it, then its one small step to making foie gras illegal to sell in the city of Milwaukee, WI and hopefully lead to banning it the state of Wisconsin.

Thank you.
