    Re: Muslim McNuggets!! What?!

    I'm surprised they actually had halal food in the US to begin with. I can't say it's easy to picture any American Muslim eating at one of those crap shacks.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I wouldn't be upset if i was one of the Muslim families affected, McDonalds are actually doing you a favour. Forget how the nuggets are prepared, that's the least of your worries and think about what those disgusting things are made of. You really don't want your kids eating that crap.

    McDonalds also need to ditch the four names they have given to their nuggets and re name them. Death, funeral, graveyard and RIP would be more appropriate.

    The restaurants were the only two McDonald’s in the country that had served halal food, which requires animals be slaughtered according to Islamic practices.
    The decision follows a $700,000 settlement between McDonald’s and a customer, Ahmed Ahmed, who sued the franchise in 2011, alleging that the halal McChicken and halal Chicken McNuggets were not always prepared properly.
    McDonald’s elaborated in a statement about its decision: "We take into account local and dietary preferences, however these items were offered as an exception to McDonald's national core food menu in these two restaurants only.”

    McDonald’s said it was discontinuing the products to “focus on our national core menu."
    (Read More: Secret's Out! Hidden Menu Items)
    In the settlement, one franchisee said it "has a carefully designed system for preparing and serving halal such that halal chicken products are labeled, stored, refrigerated and cooked in halal-only areas." The company also said it had educated employees about halal food preparation and "requires strict adherence to the process."
    Earlier this year, a McDonald's attorney said that if a problem had arisen, "it was isolated and rare."
    Victor Ghalib Begg, a senior advisor at the Michigan Muslim Community Council, said McDonald's decision is sad for observant Muslim families with children who like to visit the fast-food chain, but it's not likely to make a difference in Dearborn, where many alternatives exist.
    "There's no shortage of halal restaurants, particularly here in Michigan," he said. When diners can't find halal meat, many substitute fish or kosher food, which differs slightly.
    (Read More: Cutting-Edge Restaurant Menu Items)
    "When my wife and I travel and we can't find a halal restaurant, we look for a seafood restaurant or a vegetarian one so we have no trouble at all finding any restaurant to eat," Begg said.
    The McDonald's decision reduces the number of large restaurant chains with halal-friendly locations. The halal-food finder app Zabihah organizes halal restaurants by location but includes few large chains. Among them: Crown Fried Chicken & Deli, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Subway and Outback Steakhouse.

    You know how to post a quote? The icon next to the video icon is what you use. Anyway, do you have an opinion on the matter?

    If McDonald's advertised food prepared a certain way, then that's the way it should be. No one forced them into it apparently, but if someone with religious or any dietary issue patronizes a food business based on advertisement, they should get what is advertised.

    and interestingly enough, fewer and fewer of them live in the middle east due to the persecution they face.

    How do we know when all they do is pick it up and put it on your tray-seen it done many times. Any former fast food workers here that can chime in with your nightmare stories of how "sanitary" the young folks are?

    It's up to McDonald's, and presumably the franchise owner, if they want to offer halal (or kosher, or any other religious dietary rules). Adding or canceling such a program is at their discretion.

    However, if they offer halal food, and don't do it right, the customers have a right to sue. From that point forward, it's basically up to the courts to figure out how to handle it. In this case, McDonald's chose to settle, and stop offering halal food at those two locations.



    Ahmed gets a portion, as do his lawyers, a Detroit health clinic and the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn.

    I don't see what the community is losing, really. If McDonald's were not preparing the food properly, the devout Muslims weren't going to eat there anyway. The Muslims who don't care about halal will continue to patronize the restaurants.

    Or perhaps you're outraged that Muslims can't eat McDonald's? You a shareholder, perchance?
    All Catholics should boycott McDonalds for serving meat on Friday. Mickie D's should have sections for all religions in the food prep area, seating area and washrooms. How else can we continue this fascist pusuit of behavior RULES we must now all obey.

    Re: Muslim McNuggets!! What?!

    The muslims can bitch all they want but to everyone on this thread be aware of the STATISTICS showing 99% of restaurant employees do not properly wash they hands. Even the signs to wash their hands where does it say "how" to do it. Twenty seconds is the standard minimumm to remove bacteria. How many of you do that every time you wash your hands? Hey Allah you are eating urine and poop!! How does it taste?
