Ducks Crammed Inside Cages for Foie Gras

In 2013, a PETA investigator visited Palmex, Inc. ("Palmex"), a foie gras factory farm outside Montréal. Palmex is also part of Rougié, the self-proclaimed "world's #1 producer of foie gras."

PETA's investigation found that Palmex condemns gentle ducks to spend the last few weeks before they are slaughtered inside barren metal cages that are not much bigger than their own bodies.

The ducks cannot spread a single wing or take even two steps in any direction.
They are denied access to water to bathe and swim in.   
They are not allowed to live like ducks.

In the foie gras industry, pipes are shoved down the birds' throats, and up to 4 pounds of grain and fat are pumped into their stomachs two or three times a day.

The birds' livers become diseased and swell to up to 10 times their normal size. Some ducks' organs burst.
 
Palmex supplies diseased, fatty duck livers to Hot's Kitchen ("Hot's"), a little-known Hermosa Beach, California, restaurant that sells foie gras despite California's ban on selling the vile product. In November 2012, PETA filed a lawsuit against the restaurant's owner.

Please sign the petition below to request that the businesses selling Rougié foie gras—supplied by Palmex and others—do the right thing and ditch this disgusting product.

To: Businesses selling Rougié foie gras 

I, the undersigned, hereby request that you immediately stop offering foie gras to your customers.

PETA's investigation of Palmex, Inc. ("Palmex"), a factory farm outside Montréal, found that Palmex condemns gentle ducks to spend the last few weeks before they are slaughtered in barren metal cages that are not much bigger than their own bodies. The ducks are denied all that is natural and important to them and cannot spread a single wing or take even two steps in any direction.

Palmex is part of Rougié, whose foie gras you sell.

I ask that you help end this cruelty and end your sales of foie gras.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Signed,
[Your Name]
