Amazon UK Ceases the Online Sale of Foie Gras

Internet protest efforts cause the online retailer to drop foie gras from its store.

According to Mercy For Animals, the anti-foie gras campaign included an online petition along with numerous images and videos of foie gras farms, which depicted ducks in metal cages being force-fed.
