Foie Gras: Cruelty to Ducks and Geese

To produce “foie gras” (the French term means “fatty liver”), workers ram pipes down the throats of male ducks twice each day, pumping up to 2.2 pounds of grain and fat into their stomachs, or geese three times a day, up to 4 pounds daily, in a process known as “gavage.” The force-feeding causes the birds’ livers to swell to up to 10 times their normal size. Many birds have difficulty standing because their engorged livers distend their abdomens, and they may tear out their own feathers and attack each other out of stress.

The birds are kept in tiny cages or crowded sheds. Unable to bathe or groom themselves, they become coated with excrement mixed with the oils that would normally protect their feathers from water. One Newsweek reporter who visited a foie gras factory farm described the ducks as “listless” and “often lame from foot infection due to standing on metal grilles during the gavage.” Other common health problems include damage to the esophagus, fungal infections, diarrhea, impaired liver function, heat stress, lesions, and fractures of the sternum. Some ducks die of aspiration pneumonia, which occurs when grain is forced into the ducks’ lungs or when birds choke on their own vomit. In one study, birds force-fed for foie gras had a mortality rate up to 20 times that of a control group of birds who were not force-fed. Since foie gras is made from the livers of only male ducks, all female ducklings—40 million of them each year in France alone—are useless to the industry and are therefore simply tossed into grinders, live, so that their bodies can be processed into fertilizer or cat food.

A PETA investigation at Hudson Valley Foie Gras in New York (previously called “Commonwealth Enterprises”) found that a single worker was expected to force-feed 500 birds three times each day. The pace meant that they often treated the birds roughly and left them injured and suffering. So many ducks died from ruptured organs resulting from overfeeding that workers who killed fewer than 50 birds per month were given a bonus. A worker told a PETA investigator that he could feel tumor-like lumps, caused by force-feeding, in some ducks’ throats. One duck had a maggot-ridden neck wound so severe that water spilled out of it when he drank. Another PETA investigation at Hudson Valley in 2013 documented that prior to the force-feeding period, young ducks were crammed by the thousands into huge warehouse-like sheds in conditions that are virtually identical to those for “broiler” chickens and turkeys on factory farms. Ducks who were being force-fed were confined, up to a dozen at a time, to a pen measuring just 4 feet by 6 feet. PETA’s investigator saw workers drag ducks by their necks along the wire floor and pin them between their legs before ramming the metal force-feeding tubes down their throats.

By Hudson Valley’s own calculations, approximately 15,000 ducks on the farm die every year before they can be slaughtered. Every single week, this one company sells foie gras made from 5,000 diseased ducks. Ducks at Hudson Valley are killed on site, and PETA’s investigator documented one bird who was still moving after his throat had been cut. At a farm near Montréal that is owned by Palmex, Inc.—which is a brand of the world’s largest foie gras producer, Rougié—PETA documented ducks lined up in rows of iron coffin-like cages that encase their bodies like vises. The birds’ heads and necks protrude through small openings to make the force-feeding easier for the human workers. The birds can do little more than stand up, lie down, and turn their heads. They cannot turn around or spread a single wing. Similar conditions have been documented on some of the largest French foie gras factory farms. Even minimal changes to cage-size requirements have some French companies considering moving production to China, where there are no laws to protect animals from cruelty and where foie gras production is increasing. Foie gras is so cruel that California has banned its production. (The ban on in-state production remains in place while legal battles continue over whether California can also ban the sale of foie gras.) Force-feeding animals is against the law in many countries, including Israel, Germany, Norway, and the United Kingdom. India has banned the importation of foie gras, meaning that it cannot legally be sold anywhere in the country.

Hudson Valley Foie Gras Factory Farm Investigation

Hudson Valley Foie Gras

In Ferndale, New York, this is the nation’s largest foie gras factory farm in the U.S. And while most factory farms shun visits from the public, Hudson Valley Foie Gras is an exception.
It surprisingly offers tours to the public. So COK’s undercover investigator took advantage of this opportunity by scheduling a visit, and wearing a hidden camera during the tour.
Even though this was a white-gloved, guided tour, the video reveals the sheer barbarity of this industry. What he documented can only be described as a torture chamber for birds—from pipes being shoved down their throats and food pumped into their stomachs to being grabbed by their wings, shackled upside down, and their throats slit.

What Is Foie Gras?

Foie gras is French for “fatty liver,” and in order to produce this so-called “delicacy,” ducks are force fed abnormally large quantities of food, causing their livers to become diseased and swell up to ten times the normal size. After 28 days of force-feeding, the birds are killed, and their diseased livers are marketed as foie gras.

HELP US END CRUEL FOOD

1 million birds die each year

Compassion believes that no animal should suffer for food production. A European Council Directive states: “No animal shall be provided with food or liquid in a manner... which may cause unnecessary suffering or injury”. Yet around one million birds die during this cruel feeding process every single year. Many countries have banned the force feeding of animals for foie gras. But the suffering goes on. Annually more than 19,000 tonnes of foie gras are being produced in France alone.

What is Compassion doing?

Compassion is working to get Foie Gras Production banned across Europe by lobbying member states and the European Commission. We have also taken specific action against new Foie Gras facilities that are being developed. Check out the timeline below for more information

What can I do?

The Pain Behind Foie Gras

Foie gras is made from the grotesquely enlarged livers of ducks and geese who have been cruelly force-fed. Although France is the primary producer (and consumer) of this so-called “delicacy”—France produces more than 20,000 tons of foie gras each year—force-feeding takes place on a few duck farms in the U.S. too.1 Although foie gras has historically come from force-fed geese, most foie gras farms now raise ducks—mule, Muscovy, and genetically manipulated, sterile birds called “moulards.”2,3 Farmers have found that they can sell more than just the ducks’ fattened livers: Ducks’ legs, breasts, fat, and skin are all marketed for (mostly French) specialty foods. The bodies of geese, however, age too quickly to be used for some of these foods.4 Today, in France, only 4 percent of foie gras comes from geese.5 It is common, however, for geese to be raised for their down as well as for foie gras; birds with white feathers are preferred for this purpose.6

Force-Feeding

Birds raised for foie gras spend the first four weeks of their lives eating and growing, sometimes in semi-darkness. For the next four weeks, they are confined to cages and fed a high-protein, high-starch diet that is designed to promote rapid growth. Force-feeding begins when the birds are between 8 and 10 weeks old. For 12 to 21 days, ducks and geese are subjected to gavage—every day, between 2 and 4 pounds of grain and fat are forced down the birds’ throats by means of an auger in a feeding tube.7,8 The Washington Post reported that the tube “is pushed 5 inches down their throats, and more food than they want is gunned into their stomachs. If the mushy corn sticks … a stick is sometimes used to force it down.”9 The birds’ livers, which become engorged from a carbohydrate-rich diet, can grow to be more than 10 times their normal size (a disease called “hepatic steatosis”).10 The mortality rate of birds raised for foie gras has been found to be as much as 20 times higher than that of birds raised normally, and carcasses show wing fractures and severe tissue damage to the throat muscles.11

Investigations Reveal Additional Cruelty

A PETA investigation at Hudson Valley Foie Gras (then known as Commonwealth Enterprises), a production facility in New York, revealed that workers were expected to force-feed 500 birds three times a day. A worker told one of PETA’s investigators that he could feel tumor-like lumps, caused by force-feeding, in some ducks’ throats. One duck had a maggot-covered neck wound that was so severe that water spilled out of it when he drank. Workers routinely carried ducks by their necks, causing them to choke and defecate in distress. One veterinarian who accompanied the police on their raid of Commonwealth noted, “Many of the ducks … were lame or unable to walk without using their wings for support. Some ducks moved by pushing their bodies along the floor.” The same veterinarian said, “All of the birds in the force-feeding area had dirty, ragged, incomplete plumage, yet none were attempting to preen. Only severely stressed or ill ducks allow their plumage to deteriorate to [such a] degree. … Normal ducks keep their feathers in near-perfect condition.”12

A New York state wildlife pathologist who examined ducks from Commonwealth expressed horror at the birds’ “greatly enlarged livers, the product of overfeeding by force (livers are easily torn by even minor trauma)” and at one duck’s “laceration of the liver with hemorrhage into the body cavity.” He went on to say, “This type of treatment and farming of waterfowl is outside the acceptable norms of agriculture and sane treatment of animals.”13 He later told PETA, “If this kind of thing [were] happening to dogs, it would be stopped immediately.”14 A New York Times reporter who visited Sonoma Foie Gras in California found that young ducks had their beaks clipped and that birds “were so fat [that] they moved little and panted.” The reporter also noted that at the age of 12 to 15 weeks, birds were confined to dark sheds that had “standing water … deep enough to suggest a drainage problem.”15 Visit www.gourmetcruelty.com and www.stopforcefeeding.com to view video footage and learn more about this investigation. Decades have passed but the cruelty continues. Please visit PETA.org to see the very latest investigation into Hudson Valley Foie Gras.

Domestic Ducks and Geese

Domestic ducks and geese usually enjoy being hand-fed by humans; however, according to one study, birds subjected to force-feeding “kept away from the person who would force-feed them … the birds were less well able to move and were usually panting but they still moved away.”16 Even ducks confined to cages “moved their heads away from the person who was about to force feed them.”17 Ducks also like to forage, swim, and raise their young, none of which can they do on foie gras farms. Geese are social animals who establish hierarchies in their flocks and love to forage. They tend to be monogamous, and both parents care for their young. One breeder says that “geese tend to vary more from one individual to another in terms of personality traits than any other form of domestic poultry.”18 Because most birds raised for foie gras are kept in cages or in very small groups, their social or normal grooming activities are limited or impossible.

High in Fat, High in Cholesterol

Foie gras is unhealthy for humans. It derives 85 percent of its calories from fat: A 2-ounce serving contains 25 grams of fat and 85 milligrams of cholesterol.19

Foie Gras Bans

The Israeli Supreme Court ruled that foie gras production violates the country’s cruelty-to-animals laws, and the practice is now banned in Israel.20 Germany and other European nations have prohibited the production of foie gras, and force-feeding birds is prohibited in the U.K. and in Switzerland, where foie gras packages are required to carry labels to inform consumers that the birds were force-fed.21,22 The European Union is working to phase out the force-feeding of birds entirely in its member countries by 2020.23 India has banned the import of foie gras.24 Whole Foods Market does not allow the sale of foie gras in any of its stores in the U.S. and the U.K.25

What You Can Do

Urge restaurants and stores that sell foie gras to stop doing so and to sell vegetarian pâté instead; vegetarian brands, such as Bonavita, are often sold alongside liver pâtés in grocery stores. Organize demonstrations at restaurants and stores that sell foie gras. Contact PETA for a foie gras action pack and for information on how you can support legislation to prohibit force-feeding.

please share this in tones of places of the internet to help stop the stealing of the lives of ducks & geese! to help spare their lives which matter so much!!!! ♟ thanks! share this on twitter, watsap, instragram, youtub , facebook, by email to each and every single one of your contacts ♟ on social networks, myspace, on forums, private messages, chats, blogs, wesites, on the cellphone, ♟ etc thank you infinitely

Foie Gras: Cruelty to Ducks and Geese

The production of foie gras is so cruel and horrifying that it has been banned in 16 countries. To produce “foie gras” (the French term means “fatty liver”), workers shove pipes down the throats of male ducks twice each day, pumping up to 1 kilogram of grain and fat into their stomachs, or geese three times a day, up to 2 kilograms daily, in a process known as “gavage.” Rupturing of the stomach and other internal organs as well as a plethora of other ailments are common among birds during the production of foie gras.

Birds on foie gras farms don’t have the ability to engage in natural behaviors, like flapping their wings, preening themselves, or swimming. This force-feeding causes the birds’ livers to become diseased and swell up to 10 times their normal size. The diseased liver is foie gras, and restaurants include it on their menus as a “delicacy.” Many birds have difficulty standing because their engorged livers distend their abdomens, and they may tear out their own feathers and attack each other out of stress.

What You Can Do

Compassionate people around the world are speaking out against this cruelly produced food, and both supermarkets and restaurants are refusing to offer it. We can speak out, too! If you see a restaurant or store in your area serving or selling foie gras, take a stand and tell it to get rid of the cruel dish.

Crammed into tiny cages, caked in filth, riddled with sores and in agony from broken beaks and wings, these are the ducks used to make foie gras at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants. Campaigners last night branded the horrific conditions the “worst ever seen” after being shown the pictures of shocking cruelty at plants that supply the celebrity chef with the posh dish. Ducks lie dead and dying, many have painful eye injuries and abscesses and all are force-fed grain through a tube to make their livers 10 times the normal size during a two-week ordeal in a ­windowless shed before they are slaughtered. In one pitiful scene, an exhausted and clearly distressed bird can be seen on its side with its tongue hanging from its beak. A vet who saw the disturbing footage, obtained by the Mirror, said if pets were kept in such appalling conditions their owners would be hauled before a court.

Justin Kerswell, campaigns manager for animal rights group Viva!, said: “This is torture, pure and simple. “I can’t imagine Gordon Ramsay would dare defend this. We have seen many images of animal suffering in our 20-year history, but this footage from a supplier to Gordon Ramsay has to rank as among the worst and the most heart-breaking. “Ducks caged and filthy in their own vomit and clearly in distress, all to produce a dollop of fat as a choice on expensive menus that no one needs.“How long can he say that taste trumps ethics when faced with this?” Duck torture of Gordon Ramsay's foie gras supplier

Ramsay last night stopped all purchasing from the French firm Ernest Soulard that supplies his foie gras. A spokesman said: “We have only just been made aware of these allegations but as a precaution have suspended purchasing from this supplier while we investigate further.” Viva! launched an investigation into conditions with French campaign group L214 after being passed the footage. The films were from five Soulard farms in France’s Vendee region. We asked respected vet Amir Kashiv to examine the footage, which he branded “appalling”. He said: “The system depicted in this is shocking. “If any keeper of dogs or cats, or pet birds, were found to keep their animals in such conditions and with similar intentions they would surely find themselves in a courtroom. “These are waterfowl yet they have no access to water. They have no access to anything at all.

"Mostly, the ducks are either extremely confined or at best in a crowded group in larger pens where weaker birds can be seen trampled upon by others in the group. “Ducks have obvious eye lesions. Many can be seen panting heavily. "This can be due to serious respiratory disease and high environmental temperature in the unit. Several ducks are extremely ill and appear to be dying. “One is seen facing backwards in the pen, its left wing is caught in between the bars and a bloody lesion is visible. “The bird is seen making several unsuccessful attempts to free the wing. It is clearly distressed. Several dead birds are seen on the floor. “Workers can be seen feeding the birds. The whole procedure takes seconds. "Due to the abruptness and speed there is a danger of damaging the mouth or oesophagus in the process. The purpose is to produce a huge, fatty, unhealthy liver.

"Specifically - to damage the birds’ health.” Taste of death: Foie gras

The process of obtaining foie gras is so cruel its ­production has been banned in Britain. But imports from France and other countries is not controlled. Soulard’s logo is a happy picture of a duck wearing a bow tie and free range living. Although the birds do have a period of outside, they then spend a miserable fortnight cooped up in the tiny pens as they are prepared for death. Foie gras appears on the A La Carte Menu at the ­flagship Gordon Ramsay restaurant in London. It is on sale at his Maze restaurant and Michelin starred Savoy Grill. It is believed his ­restaurants buy it using an ­intermediary and he was unaware of any cruelty. Gordon Ramsay restaurants had boasted Soulard was an “industry leader in terms of animal welfare”. Former farming minister David Heath urged diners to boycott foie gras over its cruel farming methods. The Somerton and Frome MP added: “I am far from convinced there is a humane way of producing it.” A Soulard spokesman said

the chief executive would contact the Mirror, but no call was received. Delicacy created by misery Every year 38 million ducks and geese are killed in France to make foie gras, a delicacy there. At slaughter they are hung upside down, have their throats slit and are left to bleed to death. About a million birds die in the force-feeding process. Only males are used. Females, which do not put on weight so fast, are typically destroyed at a day old by being dropped into electric mincers. France is by far the world’s largest producer and consumer of foie gras, which by law can only have that definition if force-feeding is used. But small producers in other countries – amid growing fury over the cruel methods – let birds eat freely before killing them when their livers are naturally bigger.

MICHELIN STAR CHEF SAYS FOIE GRAS IS INHUMANE

Albert Roux, the French-born Michelin star restaurateur, recently criticised the methods used to produce foie gras and called for a clearer labelling of the product to inform consumers of its effects on geese and ducks. "It's absolutely fantastic when chefs stand up against foie gras, because it is one of the most inhumane and cruel systems of feeding. It's good when British chefs speak out against foie gras, but a French chef coming out against it is a move forward. We need a clear method of production labelling for all animal products, as we have with eggs, along with greater consumer awareness about what the different systems mean for farm animals", Lasse Bruun, Compassion in World Farming's Head of Campaigns.

To produce foie gras (literally "fat liver"), ducks and geese are force-fed with a long pipe being thrust down their throat. During the force feeding period ducks may be kept in tiny cages where they cannot stand erect, turn round or flap their wings. They can suffer damage to the liver and fear, distress and injuries caused by the force-feeding procedure. The force-feeding of ducks and geese could and should be replaced by more humane methods in which they are allowed to gorge themselves naturally, leading to a moderate increase in the size of the liver. A number of countries, including Denmark, Germany, Norway and Poland have legislation specifically prohibiting force-feeding. In the UK and Switzerland general animal protection legislation is interpreted as prohibiting force feeding. So why buy a product that would be illegal to produce in Britain and many other countries in Europe? Labelling should clearly state that foie gras does not respect animal welfare standards and enable the consumer to make an informed choice.

TAKE ACTION

When you are shopping or visiting a restaurant, whether at home or abroad, avoid buying or ordering foie gras. If you see a shop/restaurant selling this so called 'luxury', please pass their details to Compassion in World Farming. We will write and ask them to consider withdrawing the product. You may like to write too. Write a letter to your local newspaper about the cruelty involved and ask the public to boycott foie gras for these reasons.

Why Animal Rights Activists Oppose Foie Gras

September 03, 2018

Foie gras, French for "fatty liver," is the fattened liver of a duck or a goose and is regarded by some as a delicacy. According to Farm Sanctuary, France produces and consumes about 75 percent 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. Animal rights activists oppose all uses of animals and advocate veganism, but many consider foie gras to be particularly cruel. It's viewed in the same category as veal, which even most enlightened carnivores avoid.

Why Foie Gras Is 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 sometimes 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 genders of geese are used in foie gras production, but with ducks, only the males are used 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.

Foie Gras Bans

In 2004, California enacted a ban on the sale and production foie gras that was to take effect in 2012 but never did. Farm Sanctuary, which had actively and aggressively fought for the passage of the bill, reported: "On January 7, a federal district court judge invalidated California’s ban on the sale of foie gras, a ban that Farm Sanctuary and our supporters actively worked to get passed in 2004. The judge erroneously ruled that an unrelated federal law, the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA), preempts the California foie gras ban. 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

Experts on Foie Gras

A variety of veterinarians and scientists oppose 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 practiced, is detrimental to the welfare of the birds." The American Veterinary Medical Association has not taken a position for or against foie gras but has stated. "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 known potential risks associated with foie gras production, are:
 Potential for injury due to multiple insertions of a long feeding tube, with possibility of secondary infection.
 Distress from restraint and manipulations associated with force feeding.
 Compromised health and welfare resulting from obesity, including the potential for impaired locomotion and lethargy.
 Creation of a vulnerable animal more likely to suffer from otherwise tolerable conditions such as heat and transport.

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 free of human use.
