Ban the sale of foie gras in your farmers' markets
Farmers’ markets promote values that many of us agree are important. One of those values is ethical and sustainable food production. Sadly, there are vendors that do not abide by this value. In my home state of California, there are vendors at farmers’ markets selling foie gras, a product derived through the inhumane treatment of ducks and geese.
Foie gras is produced by force-feeding ducks or geese massive amounts of corn until their livers swell up to 10 times their normal size. These livers, diseased and full of fatty deposits, are considered a “delicacy” by some, and are sold for a high price.
Sadly, a California ban on foie gras was overturned by a court based on a technicality. While our lawmakers figure out next steps, organizations such as the California Farmers’ Market Association (CFMA) can take action. This petition is calling on the CFMA to ban foie gras from certified farmers’ markets they manage.
Most ducks used to produce Foie Gras are kept in tiny cages their entire lives. Several times a day, workers ram a long metal pipe down the throats of the ducks, and pump 2 pounds of pressurized feed into the birds stomachs. The vast amount of feed pumped down the ducks' throats causes enormous internal pressure. Some birds literally burst, choke to death on their own vomit, or become so weak that they are unable to fend off rats from eating them alive. Experts believe the animals experience unspeakable pain and suffering, and birds have literally exploded from the force feedings.
In addition to the horrific force-feeding, foie gras ducks and geese live in the same deplorable conditions as other factory-farmed animals: overcrowded cages that are so small they are unable to stretch their wings, feathers covered in waste because they cannot groom or bathe, and no social interaction with other birds. The suffering of these animals is too high a price to pay for any meal.
It’s simple: a food item produced through the torture of animals has no place in farmers’ markets, or anywhere else. Several restaurants and retailers—such as Costco, Safeway, Target, Giant Eagle, Whole Foods Market and Wolfgang Puck—refuse to sell foie gras. CFMA needs to do the same.
Foie gras has to go, and the CFMA has the power to make that change. Please join me in urging the California Farmers’ Markets Association to ban sales of foie gras at any certified farmers’ market they manage. Thank you.
I urge you to watch the following videos which will drive home the barbaric cruelty and abuse involved in producing Foie Gras:
Video:… (60 minutes)
(sadly the second video was not able to be used  )

Quick Note: I am very sorry for not posting anything in so long, I actually just got this some time today :(
I would like to withdraw the last entry I made that was all a couple mix-up, for everyone who got to look over it the statements in that entry were not true it was my fault I didn check my information like I should have so I would like to apologize for scaring anyone. I took the last entry down as well so no need to worry, I cannot express I'm sorry I am for doing that and not even bothering to check everything before posting it and the person named in the entry is not a cyber stalker~
I hope everyone has a great rest of the day~<3
(sorry for sucking so much at writing these :/)

I figure this group would be interested in at least reading about this documentary and perhaps also sharing it around with those who you feel would also want to help out.…
