Phil Collins Urges British Grocery Chain To Stop Selling Foie Gras

Phil Collins just got 15 extra cool points in my book! Collins recently wrote a letter to Selfridges blasting them for selling Foie Gras in their stores. To review: Foie Gras is made by shoving pipes down the throats of ducks and geese and force-feeding them until their livers become fatty and often diseased. And that’s not just vegan propaganda talk…that’s ACTUALLY what happens.

So vile is this product, that Foie gras is already banned in 15 countries, including the U.K., where Selfridges is based. Prince Charles — who I think is just swell — has also banned foie gras from all Royal menus this year and every other major U.K. supermarket have already banned foie gras from their shelves. So what is Selfridges doing selling it? You tell me!

In his letter, Collins writes: “To force-feed the birds, pipes are rammed down their throats a few times per day. Many times, the pipes puncture the birds’ throats, and the animals bleed to death. This cruel procedure causes the birds’ livers to become diseased and swell up to 10 times their normal size. Birds that don’t die became sick and lethargic, and indeed, death rates skyrocket during the force-feeding time.”

If you’d like to see Selfridges stop selling Foie Gras, please take a few seconds and fill out PETA’s petition! Because, let’s be honest, cruelty is never cool!
