Protestors were outside Amazon.com's Seattle headquarters Tuesday afternoon,  asking the site to stop selling a controversial product.

"We're calling on Amazon to take a stand against egregious cruelty to animals ...by immediately ending the sale of foie gras on its site,” said Sara Von alt of Mercy for Animals.

Members of the animal rights group Mercy for Animals say a company that sells foie gras through Amazon is using cruel methods to force feed ducks.

The group says leading chefs, restaurants, and grocery retailers, including Costco, Safeway, Wolfgang Puck, Giant Eagle, and Target, refuse to sell foie gras due to its inherent cruelty.
    
The group dropped off a petition at Amazon, asking the company to stop selling Hudson Valley Foie Gras, which was the subject of an undercover investigation  (WARNING - graphic images)
