Tell Giant Eagle/Market District grocery store chain to STOP selling Faroe Islands salmon!

  • by: Maura Kelley
  • recipient: Laura Karet, CEO Giant Eagle grocery chain

Giant Eagle / Market District, a large grocery store chain serving the U.S. states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana and Maryland, buys and sells Faroe Islands salmon. Buying and selling Faroese salmon supports their economy and, indirectly, the mass slaughtering of over 1,600 whales and dolphins annually in the Faroe Islands.

Faroe Islands salmon are raised in the same fjords that contain the blood of tortured and barbarically slain whales and dolphins in 'the Grind'.

Whales and dolphins are highly intelligent, sensitive and social creatures, highly attached and loyal to their family members – these marine mammals will not leave an injured family member; they are known to physically bring the injured or dying to the surface in order to breathe.

During these mass slaughters, pilot whales and dolphins are forced to swim in the sea of blood of their murdered family members until they themselves are gaffed and violently dragged and then stabbed to death.

Chief medical officers and scientists have declared pilot whale meat unsafe for human consumption due to mercury and other toxins.

The Faroe Islands are a territory of Denmark, a region that holds one of the highest standards of living in Europe, and while there is a ban on whaling in these waters per international law (IWC), Denmark protects the Grind through a small loophole.

Ask Giant Eagle/Market District to stand up for the humane treatment of animals by stopping their sales of Faroese salmon until the hideous pain-filled cetacean massacres end in the Faroe Islands.  Other major food companies have already taken this stance, so Giant Eagle/Market District should, too.
