Action Alert

Help Us Ban Foie Gras in New York City

This action is for New York City residents only

THIS ACTION IS CLOSED.

New York City is considering a ban on the sale of foie gras. Foie gras is a cruelly-produced “gourmet” delicacy that comes from force-feeding young ducks and geese until their livers swell to eight times their natural size.

Ducks and geese raised for foie gras endure painful force-feedings several times a day where a thick pipe is rammed down their throats. These birds frequently develop painful punctures in their beak and throat and become too heavy for their legs to hold them.
