Tell Giant Eagle to Stop Supporting Duck Torture!

Giant Eagle, a grocery-store chain with more than 200 stores in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, and Ohio, has recently begun selling foie gras, which is made by force-feeding ducks and geese until their livers swell up and become diseased. Investigations at every foie gras farm in the United States and throughout Europe have documented sick, dead, and dying animals, some with holes in their necks from injuries caused by the pipes that are shoved down their throats. One investigation in New York found ducks with bloody beaks and their wings twisted together jammed into wire cages. At another farm, birds were dangling by wires as blood spilled from their neck wounds onto live birds beneath them. Although the state of California, the city of Chicago, and 16 nations worldwide have banned foie gras—and the pope has condemned it—Giant Eagle continues to sell this cruel product and has repeatedly ignored requests from animal rights groups to discuss the issue.

Please contact any Giant Eagle store and urge them not to carry this cruel product.

Victory: No More Foie Gras at Giant Eagle! 

Giant Eagle, a grocery store chain with more than 200 stores in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, and Ohio announced formally to PETA that they have stopped selling foie gras.

It seems that the 250,000 e-mails and countless phone calls from concerned shoppers were so effective that Giant decided to support customers and take a stand against the force-feeding of ducks and geese to produce foie gras. Giant Eagle has followed Whole Foods steps on this issue.
