Call for French food stall to axe foie gras

WE were saddened to see foie gras being sold on the French food stall in Hampstead Community Centre in Hampstead High street. This food is produced so cruelly that it is illegal to produce it in this country, but unfortunately it is not illegal to sell

WE were saddened to see foie gras being sold on the French food stall in Hampstead Community Centre in Hampstead High street. This "food" is produced so cruelly that it is illegal to produce it in this country, but unfortunately it is not illegal to sell it here.

A metal pipe is shoved down the throats of ducks or geese three times a day and pumped so full of food they have difficulty walking and breathing. Sometimes birds' stomachs burst during force feeding. We hope everyone will stay away from this immensely cruel product and that this stall will withdraw its sale.
