Join ASPCA and insist that the National Organic Standards Board insure the humane treatment of chickens, turkeys, ducks and geese raised for organic food. Current and proposed rules don't protect birds from beak trimming, force-feeding & other cruelties.

Foie Gras, literal translation is "fatty liver"; this is the process where 'farmers' force a tube down a duck or a geese throat and pumps up to 20kg of fat into their bodies. The living conditions of our beautiful feathered friends are appalling.
