Voters For Animals Rights Sues D’Artagnan Foods Over Foie Gras

BROOKLYN, N.Y. – Voters For Animals Rights alleges that D’Artagnan gourmet food products falsely markets its foie gras products as humane when the company allegedly uses inhumane practices such as force-feeding and places the ducks in crowded cages.

Voters For Animal Rights filed a complaint Oct. 31 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York against D’Artagnan Inc. and D’Artagnan LLC alleging violations of New York General Business Law.

The suit states the defendants sell foie gras under the D’Artagnan name and their advertising implies the animals are treated humanely.
