Mercy for Animals, an activist group known for its undercover videos of animal abuse by suppliers to some of the world’s largest retailers, now is going after Amazon.com Inc.
The nonprofit wants Seattle-based Amazon to stop selling foie gras and has created a website, AmazonCruelty.com, to generate public outrage via social media.
The site features a three-minute video that claims to show duck “torture” by New York producer Hudson Valley Foie Gras, whose products are sold on Amazon.
An Amazon spokeswoman did not return an email or phone call seeking comment Tuesday. Hudson Valley Foie Gras, believed to be the nation’s largest foie-gras producer, also could not be reached for comment.
