Foie Gras Pollution

New York lawmakers vote in favor of animal activists and issue an injunction to a polluting foie gras factory.

On May 6, Hudson Valley Foie Gras, the nation's largest foie gras factory farm, was issued an injunction by a federal court in New York, barring them from continuing to violate the Clean Water Act and requiring the company to alter its practices. The ruling was the result of a lawsuit filed by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), who argued that the company was routinely breaking the law by disposing animal waste into a local river and harming animals, the environment, and local residents. Foie gras, a French delicacy, is a perennially controversial dish that is manufactured by extracting the livers of overfed factory-farmed geese.
