UPC Co-sponsors Newspaper Ad Condemning the AVMA’s Support for Foie Gras

United Poultry Concerns joined Animal Rights International and Animal Rights Hawaii in sponsoring a full-page ad in the Honolulu Advertiser on July 14, condemning the American Veterinary Medical Association’s continued support for force feeding ducks and geese to produce the diseased liver product known as foie gras, or “fattened liver.”  The ad corresponds in time with the AVMA’s Annual Convention, held this year in Honolulu, July 15-19. Last year, the AVMA defeated a resolution to disallow the force feeding of ducks and geese to produce foie gras. This year, the AVMA considered a new resolution to oppose the practice, but rejected it. To view the ad, which includes contact information for the AVMA, click here.
