Amazon agrees to stop selling foie gras on UK website after bowing to pressure from animal welfare campaigners

Amazon has bowed to pressure from animal welfare campaigners and decided to stop selling ‘cruel’ foie gras on its British website.

The product, which comes from ducks and geese that are force fed to make their livers grow to a large an unnatural size, has been added to a list of prohibited items.

It is highly prized by some food lovers and celebrity chefs, such as Gordon Ramsay, who have included it on their menus for many years.

Setting a precedent: Amazon has taken an 'ethical lead' and delisted more than 100 foie gras products from its UK website following pressure from animal rights activists

Awesome news :o)
