Major UK retailer Selfridges recently pledged to stop selling the so called “delicacy” forever. Foie gras, for those of you who don’t know, (which I’m pretty sure is most of you, because foie gras is disgusting and eaten mostly by older, snooty people!) is made from the engorged livers of ducks and geese. Eat someone’s fatty liver? … I don’t think so.
Tubes are shoved down the birds’ throats several times a day to force-feed them grain and fat, which often punctures their throats, resulting in tissue damage and internal bleeding. Watch as Kate describes the horrors behind foie gras.
Please share this video with everyone you know and spread the word that there isn’t anything chic about foie gras.
