“Would this be allowed if it were any other animal??  Birds feel pain too, force feeding them which deliberately causes them to succumb to a variety of illness’s is blatant animal abuse in my eyes. Why is this still allowed to happen, humans kill enough animals…this is a delicacy…not part of our staple diet..therefore not needed!”

More at http://www.aldf.org/foiegras — The Animal Legal Defense Fund and several others filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for violating the federal Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) by allowing adulterated poultry—in the form of foie gras—to be sold to consumers. Under PPIA, the USDA is responsible for condemning all poultry products that come from diseased birds. Foie gras consists of the pathologically diseased livers of ducks who are force-fed massive amounts of grain, inducing the disease of hepatic lipidosis, which causes their livers to swell to ten times their normal size.
