Urge the EU to Crack Down on Cruel Foie Gras Production
The evidence is clear, the experts agree and the law is in place. So why is the European Commission still failing to take action against foie gras production?
Foie gras, or "fatty liver" pâté, is a vile product made by force-feeding ducks and geese until their livers become diseased and swollen, causing the birds immense suffering.
Scientific evidence and the testimonies of vets and avian experts provide clear proof that the production of foie gras is not only cruel but also incompatible with the European Commission's regulations on food production. In addition to the horror of being force-fed massive amounts of grain every day, many animals on foie gras farms are kept in cramped cages that do not comply with Council of Europe recommendations.
However, despite being presented with a wealth of evidence and receiving numerous formal complaints, the European Commission has so far done nothing to halt barbaric foie gras production or to help the tens of millions of birds suffering every year.
We've teamed up with a group of animal protection organisations to take this issue to the top. We're calling on the presidents of the European Commission and the EU Agriculture and Fisheries Council to break the stalemate on foie gras.
