Foie Gras
2 years ago

Not a petition,but news on Foie Gras


Animal rights activists oppose all uses of animals and advocate veganism, but many consider foie gras to be particularly cruel.

What is Foie Gras?

Foie gras, French for "fatty liver," is the fattened liver of a duck or a goose and is regarded by some as a delicacy.

Why is Foie Gras Considered Cruel?

The production of foie gras is considered by some to be unusually cruel because the birds are force-fed a corn mash through a metal tube several times a day, so that they gain weight and their livers become 10 times their natural size. Force-feeding sometime injures the esophagus of the bird, which may lead to death. Additionally, the fattened ducks and geese may have difficulty walking, vomit undigested food, and/or suffer in extreme confinement.

Both sexes of geese are used in foie gras production, but with ducks, only the males are used for foie gras while the females are raised for meat.

"Humane Foie Gras"

Some farmers now offer "humane foie gras," which is produced without force-feeding. These livers may not meet legal definitions of foie gras in some countries, which require a minimum size and/or fat content.

How Many Animals?

According to Farm Sanctuary, France produces and consumes about 75% of the world's foie gras, involving 24 million ducks and a half a million geese every year. The United States and Canada use 500,000 birds per year in foie gras production.

Foie Gras Bans

In 2004, California enacted a ban on the sale and production foie gras that will take effect in 2012. In 2006, the city of Chicago banned the production and sale of foie gras, but the ban was overturned in 2008. Several European countries have banned the production of foie gras by explicitly banning the force-feeding of animals for food production, but have not banned the import or sale of foie gras. Several other European countries as well as Israel and South Africa have interpreted their animal cruelty laws as banning the force-feeding of animals for foie gras production.

What Do the Experts Say?

A variety of veterinarians and scientists oppose the force-feeding of animals for foie gras production, including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. The European Union's Scientific Committee on Animal Health and Animal Welfare investigated the production of foie gras in 1998 and concluded that "force feeding, as currently practised, is detrimental to the welfare of the birds."

The American Veterinary Medical Association has not taken a position for or against foie gras, but states, "There is a clear and pressing need for research that focuses on the condition of ducks during fattening, including the actual incidence and severity of animal welfare risks on the farm."

The Animal Rights Position

Even birds used in "humane foie gras" production are bred, confined, and killed. Regardless of whether the animals are force-fed or how well the animals are treated, foie gras can never be acceptable because using an animal in food production violates the animal's rights to be be free of human use.
