TRADER JOE'S DROPS DUCK MEAT
Viva! Campaign Successful!

Thanks to phone calls and letters from thousands of animal activists and concerned shoppers, Trader Joe's supermarket announced it will no longer sell duck meat. At issue is the cruelty of duck production including filthy warehouses holding thousands of de-billed ducks, many of them suffering from untreated infections linked to their stressful, unsanitary living conditions including lack of water to rinse their eyes in.
