Update: Sir Roger Moore's Campaign Proves Successful As Selfridges Drops Foie Gras
Get out those noise-makers and streamers made from 100 percent post-consumer waste, we’re having a party!
Earlier this year, Ecorazzi reported that Sir Roger Moore was speaking out against foie gras in a BIG way! The well-known actor had targeted Selfridges–one of the largest supermarkets in the UK–and asked them to stop selling the cruel stuff. Moore even sent a private letter to Selfridges’ owner, offering to buy the company’s entire remaining stock if they agreed never to carry it again.
Well…WE HAVE A WINNER!
After two years of targeted campaign efforts, Selfridges has agreed to take foie gras off its shelves. WOO!! A big thank you to PETA, Moore and all those who worked hard to convince the major retailer to drop the foie.
