The Animal Legal Defense Fund filed a legal petition with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), urging that foie gras—the « fatty liver » of a force-fed duck or goose—bear a consumer warning label stating « NOTICE: Foie gras products are derived from diseased birds. » Because the USDA is responsible for ensuring that poultry products are wholesome and for approving only products from healthy animals, stamping foie gras products with the USDA seal without disclosing that those products are derived from diseased birds misleads consumers, contravening the Poultry Products Inspection Act.

Foie gras comes from birds who, in addition to being horribly abused, are diseased and extremely ill. Just like someone buying a pack of cigarettes, consumers purchasing foie gras have a right to know what they are really buying, and to be warned through appropriate labeling about the risks involved.
