Animal rights group calls for NY foie gras ban

(MENAFN- AFP) An animal rights group called on the state of New York Wednesday to ban the practice of force-feeding ducks and geese to make foie gras.

Mercy For Animals (MFA) released hidden-camera footage of one New York foie gras farm at a press conference in Albany, demanding an end to the "cruel practice."

The group said it was supporting a bill against force-feeding brought by state senator Tony Avella, a Democrat.

The bill would effectively ban the production of foie gras, affecting two farms in New York State that practice force-feeding, including the biggest foie gras producer in the country, according to MFA.

The sale and production of foie gras has been banned in California since July 2012.
