BAN AMAZON.COM FOIE GRAS SHIPMENTS

feature3

Force feeding through gavageForce feeding through gavageOn July 1, 2012, California’s Foie Gras ban went into effect. Section 25981 of the California law S.B. 1520, enacted in 2004 by then CA Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, states, “A product may not be sold in California if it is the result of force feeding a bird for the purpose of enlarging the bird’s liver beyond normal size.” The ban gave producers eight years to come up with a more humane method of production, which they were not able to do.

LCA discovered shipments of foie gras from retailers outside of California that are being made through giant on-line retailer Amazon.com and is communicating with Amazon.com to stop shipments of foie gras.

Dear Michael,

I am sure you are aware that it is now illegal to sell or purchase foie gras in California. Ducks and geese are force-fed to make their livers grow up to ten times their natural size, and the method of gavage is utterly inhumane, cruel and unethical. I urge you to stop your shipments to California now, before further action is taken, and I recommend that you stop the production of foie gras altogether.

For the animals,
YOUR NAME AND CONTACT INFO

#3.) CONTACT RESTAURANTS AND STORES in your area and politely ask they stop serving and selling foie gras.

#4.) POST RESTAURANT REVIEWS ON YELP letting people know if a restuarant is still serving and selling foie gras. File a report with LCA's SIU if the restaurant is in CA so we can investigate and potentially prosecute the restaurant.
