MFA’s Anti-Foie Gras Mobile Billboard Descends on Amazon’s Headquarters

Executives at Amazon’s Seattle headquarters are being served some serious food for thought, thanks to a graphic mobile billboard circling the company’s offices this week. Featuring an image of a duck having a pipe shoved down his throat, the billboard declares, “Amazon: Foie Gras Is Too Cruel to Swallow.”

Mercy For Animals conducted a harrowing undercover investigation in 2013 at Hudson Valley Foie Gras in New York, a supplier to Amazon. The investigation revealed workers violently grabbing ducks by their wings and necks and shoving metal pipes down their throats to force feed them, countless ducks hyperventilating from their unnaturally enlarged livers pressing against their lungs, and birds with open, bleeding wounds left to suffer without proper veterinary care. 


MFA is calling on Amazon, the world’s largest online retailer, to follow the lead of companies such as Costco, Safeway, Target, Giant Eagle, Whole Foods Market, and Wolfgang Puck, and take a stand against this egregious animal abuse by prohibiting the sale of foie gras on its website.
