Reinstate Ban on Cruel Foie Gras


Target: Xavier Becerra, incoming California Attorney General

Goal: Reinstate California’s ban on foie gras, a food made by force-feeding ducks and geese under torturous conditions.

Back in 2012, California banned the sale of foie gras. Foie gras is fattened duck or goose liver and it is made by shoving a food pipe down the animal’s throat and pumping a mixture of grain and fat into the animal three to four times a day. The process is barbaric and the fattened livers cause numerous health problems in the animal.

Many of the ducks and geese used for foie gras die from the force-feeding or from choking on their own vomit. Many of the animals suffer from debilitating ailments including foot infections, fungal infections, lesions, diarrhea, fractures and impaired liver function. The lives of these animals are short and filled with misery and pain.

Unfortunately, in 2015 a federal judge overturned the ban and now foie gras is legal to sell in California. Thankfully the state appealed, and the ban may be reinstated. Sign this petition and ask the attorney general to strongly defend California’s foie gras ban.


Dear Mr. Becerra,

Unfortunately, back in 2015, California’s foie gras ban was lifted and foie gras appeared on shelves again. Foie gras is fattened duck or goose liver and the process of making it is barbaric.

Animals used for foie gras have a pipe shoved down their throat and are force fed three to four times a day. The force-feeding can often result in death and leads to many ailments. The animals used for foie gras often suffer from foot infections, fungal infections, lesions, diarrhea, fractures and impaired liver function. These animals’ day to day lives are filled with pain, misery and fear.

Please make a strong push to overturn the 2015 court ruling and reinstate California’s ban on foie gras. These animals suffer more than one can even imagine, all for a 20 minute meal which the person will forget about shortly after eating.

  1. Oh yea all involved is going to hell! This is obscene and a disgrace to everything on this earth. There is no going back from this humans.

    only a cruel bastard would eat this shit.

  3. Oh dear, California! What an advert for the USA you are. Have you not the brains to reject this abominable cruelty- and all for the sake of a disgusting food stuff which is totally unnecessary. What sort of depraved humanity consumes this stuff? Ban it- and for good this time! Don’t know what possessed you to reinstate it? Any good reason?

    • Force-feeding animals is so cruel that it is banned in MANY COUNTRIES. WHY would a backwards seeming federal judge overturn California’s previous 2012 ban on foie gras…???? What’s the deal, what went on BEHIND the scene…?? What’s up?? CALIFORNIA has a reputation for environmental integrity, progressiveness and respect for the ecosystem and all of the life contained within the ecosystem – this directly conflicts with that.

    Hello…do you folks know you are eating diseased livers of tortured birds?????

    Disgusting and so creul! Please ban Foie Gras!!!

  5. Eugene W Sengstake Jr says:

    If nothing else – the fact that foe gras is even available anywhere – is a blatant sign of the number of just plain “sick” people that abound in our society. I mean really – what else can you say about the consumers and peddlers of such an inhumane product – – –
