Because of the extreme cruelty involved in the production of foie gras, the diseased and fatty liver of force-fed ducks and geese—many restaurants, grocery chains, and other businesses around the world have stopped serving and selling the vile product. PETA has shared shocking undercover video footage of foie gras farms with Wendy’s, who has started selling foie gras in Japan in an effort to re-enter the market, but the company refuses to end its sales. Please write to Wendy’s and urge the company to stop serving foie gras.
Investigations of foie gras farms in the U.S. and overseas have documented countless sick, dead, and dying birds, including some animals who were found suffering from holes in their necks after pipes had been forced down their throats. One investigation in New York found ducks crammed into wire cages. Animals’ beaks were bloody, and their wings were twisted together. At another foie gras farm, in Europe, birds were found dangling by wires as blood spilled from their neck wounds onto live animals beneath them.
Foie gras production is so cruel that it has been condemned by the pope and is prohibited in 15 countries.
Please take a moment to write to Wendy’s President and Vice President of New Product Marketing and politely urge them to stop selling foie gras in Japan.
