Given the backlash in Chicago, it’s no surprise that the fight to ban foie gras in NYC is getting foodies’ panties in a twist. But this is a new low, especially during the holidays. Fairway has declared itself “Foie Gras Central” and is promoting the hell out of its foie gras products.
Declaring foie gras utterly humane and “one of life’s gustatory pleasures,” the sign basically panders to one of the lowest human impulses—spite—and dares people to buy the product, slinging a loud “Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah” along with their blood money.
Help set the record straight—that includes the fact that we can indeed spell “foie gras” correctly—and join Farm Sanctuary as they leaflet outside Fairway markets in New York this weekend. For more information on how to get involved, e-mail Carol Moon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
