Feed on

On Sunday, July 1, California’s ban on the production and sale of foie gras takes effect.

Birds raised for foie gras are force-fed enormous quantities of food through a long metal pipe several times a day. This process of deliberate overfeeding continues for weeks. By the end of the force-feeding process, ducks are physically debilitated with livers five to ten times normal size and many are unable to stand or walk.

Public outrage at the inhumane practices inherent in the foie gras industry has resulted in bans on production of the product in more than a dozen countries, including Germany, the U.K. and Israel. Unfortunately, despite growing public awareness of the cruelty of foie gras, the dish has not disappeared from menus.

The following Florida-based cruise lines serve foie gras on their ships (according to the latest available menu information). By serving foie gras, these companies contribute to the suffering of ducks and geese.

Please write to Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line and Oceania Cruises and politely urge the companies to stop serving foie gras on all their ships.
