Activists Tell Fortnum & Mason Foie Gras Is ‘Blooming’ Cruel!
PETA’s brilliant activists joined our “goose” outside the world famous Chelsea Flower Show today to let show attendees know about the horrific cruelty that Fortnum & Mason is supporting by continuing to sell foie gras. Whilst Fortnum & Mason hosts Chelsea’s Hospitality Village, geese are suffering and dying so that their diseased livers can be sold at the London store.
Foie gras is so cruel that its production is illegal in the UK and 16 other countries. To make the “torture in a tin”, young ducks and geese are crammed into tiny cages or pens barely larger than their own bodies. Up to 2 kilograms of grain and fat are pumped through pipes into the birds’ stomachs each day. Investigations on foie gras farms have documented sick, dead and dying birds – some with holes in their necks from pipe injuries.
Every moment that Fortnum & Mason delays an end to their foie gras sales, birds are dying. Please speak out against Fortnum & Mason’s foie gras cruelty, and take action today! You can also join us for regular protests in London: contact [email protected] for more info!
