Please stop selling Foie Gras at Amazon.com

At the present time there are 250 items of Foie Gras on your website for sale. "Birds raised for this gourmet cruelty are force-fed enormous quantities of food through a long metal pipe three times a day. This process of deliberate and painful overfeeding continues for up to a month, by which time the birds’ livers have swelled up to twelve times their healthy size." (GC) We petition you to read our informational links and please take the foie gras off of Amazon.com

1   1  Originally, all foie gras came from France, but now the United States
has gotten into this cruel niche industry. Next time you go into a
store or restaurant that sells foie gras, please let them know that a
product that comes from force-feeding ducks and geese is more than you
can stomach.

Two companies produce all of the domestically raised foie gras in the
United States. New York State’s Hudson Valley Foie Gras and
California’s Sonoma Foie Gras. Combined, they are responsible for the
torture and death of half a million ducks every year.  (GC)

Here are three things that GourmetCruelty.com suggests that we share with others
and we'd like you to review this information yourself:
  • Request a copy of Delicacy of Despair and show your friends, family, and co-workers what goes on behind the closed doors of foie gras factory farms.
  • Educate
    local restaurants and grocery stores about the animals suffering on
    foie gras factory farms, and ask them to take this gourmet cruelty off
    their menus and shelves.
  • Find out more about the exciting legislative actions that are being taken against foie gras production and what you can do to help.


We petition you to read our informational links and please take the foie gras off of Amazon.com to avoid the onset of the continued boycott of Amazon.com by many concerned customers and interested parties.

Your commitment to Co-op America is that you are "GREEN" because:
"1) its familiarity with and commitment to social and environmental responsibility, and 2) significant action in terms of this commitment. "

Selling Foie Gras from Amazon.com doesn't make you GREEN and you need to either remove the products or drop out of these programs
where you are portraying yourself as GREEN. 

Sincerely,
