Andronico's food buyer told ABC7 she was shocked when she saw the way foie gras is made. Farmers use a long, metal tube and an air-gun to force-feed ducks several times a day. The process fattens their livers, but leaves the ducks weak and sick.

A 2003 ABC7 News I-Team investigation featuring such images led to a state law banning foie gras, effective in 2012.
