(S. Africa) Store Says Sorry for Selling Foie Gras

Durban - Supermarket chain Fruit & Veg City was forced to remove foie gras (duck liver paté) from its shelves and issue an apology after shoppers voiced their anger at the sale of the French delicacy.
 
The online campaign began on Friday with several consumers posting angry messages on the chain’s Facebook page.

The food retailer eventually caved in and sent out a press release the same day, saying the product would be discontinued immediately.
 
Foie gras is produced by force-feeding ducks or geese large amounts of grain so that their livers swell to up to 10 times their normal size.
