Ask Retailers to stop selling Foie Gras

Update: Three retailers have dropped Foie gras. The Feather's Hotel, The French Pantry and De Greys. Thank you so much to everyone that signed!

Foie Gras is the fatty liver from Ducks and Geese who are force fed several times a day. This force feeding is carried out to make the birds liver swell to over 10 times it's natural size. This often making the birds incredibly sick and unable to move due to uncontrollable shaking. Certain retailers find it acceptable to sell the product despite the known cruelty involved because they know they can sell it for a high price and view it as a delicious delicacy.

Regardless of its taste and the profit that can be made, torturing ducks and geese is inexcusable and must be stopped. Please send an email to these cruel retailers telling them your frustration at their continued selling of this product and your outrage at their promotion of animal cruelty. This petition targets restaurants, small retailers as well as well known 'Gormet' retailers.

If any of these companies email you back saying they will stop selling Foie Gras please email Action for our Planet:
