    KFC Diner Told You Cant Have Bacon in Your Burger HereWere Now Halal

    Katherine Faulkner, Daily Mail (London), March 24, 2010

    A diner was left furious after a KFC restaurant refused to sell him a bacon burgerbecause it wasnt halal.

    Alan Phillips was told the restaurant was no longer selling his favourite Big Daddy burger, which contains a chicken burger with bacon, cheese and salad, because it had decided to sell only halal food.

    The Burton-on-Trent branch is one of the 86 out of 750 British KFC restaurants which is now selling nothing other than halal meat.

    The company has taken the burger off the menu because Islamic dietary law forbids Muslims to eat anything which has been prepared on the same premises as pork, which is itself strictly forbidden.

    It said it was responding to increased demand for a halal menu in the areas of Britain with growing Muslim populations.

    Mr Phillips said he found the change extremely unfair on non-Muslim customers.

    I cant believe a chain like this has taken this stance, said Mr Phillips.

    Staff told me that due to the dietary laws halal meat could not be prepared in the same place as other meats, so I couldnt have my bacon.

    It was like they were saying I couldnt buy bacon because it might offend people.

    Mr Phillips was told he would have to travel to another KFC five miles away to buy his bacon burger.

    He protested that this was too far for him to travel.

    It is getting silly, he said. I have many friends who are black, white and Muslim but they wouldnt be forced to eat non-halal meat.

    I have no problem with them selling halal meat, but I would like the choice.

    In order for meat to be considered halal it must traditionally be slaughtered by hand and blessed in the name of Allah.

    And it cannot be kept on the same premises as banned substances including pork and alcohol.

    KFC said the chickens in its halal restaurants had not been slaughtered by hand and that it had not changed any of its welfare standards.

    Demand for halal food in Britain has surged in recent years as the Muslim population has grown.

    Latest figures show the number of Muslims in Britain is growing ten times faster than the rest of the population.

    The number of Muslims in Britain soared to 2.4millionan increase of 500,000 in the four years from 2004 to 2008.

    Sales of halal meat now account for 11 per cent of all fresh meat sales in the UK and are worth about 400million a year.

    And a number of food chains have sought to cash in by opening halal outlets.

    Dominos Pizza have three halal stores in Muslim-dominated areas of Birmingham, Blackburn and Bradford, where pork sausage pizza toppings have been replaced by cured turkey.

    McDonalds trialled halal food in its store in Southall, West London, in 2007but abandoned the plan because it proved too difficult.

    Its really important to us that our customers have the choice of the full range of McDonalds products in all of our stores, said spokesman Steve Haywood.

    We would only ever offer halal as a choice and to do that we had to have the kitchen literally split down the middle, with different staff and different equipment.

    While it was technically possible to do it, it just wasnt feasible.

    High-end restaurants and shops have also been keen to benefit from the growing market for halal produce.

    Luxury department store Harrods now sells boxes of sugar-coated fruit pastilles and raspberry and blackberry fruit-flavoured gums made using halal gelatin.

    KFC spokeswoman Nina Arnott said the halal trial was expected to last a few months.

    She said: Weve responded to requests to provide halal food in some parts of the UK and the Middleway Park restaurant in Burton is one of the restaurants taking part in our trial.

    The Big Daddy is the only product weve taken off the menu at our trial stores and were using exactly the same ingredients and exactly the same tasting chicken as before.

    Were sorry Mr Phillips feels disappointed but wed recommend he visits our nearest non-halal restaurant, at the Derby Xtra services five miles away, if he wants to get his hands on a Big Daddy burger.

    KFC is a Western invention, not typically halal. If someone went to a Muslim country and was told they can't have halal meat in a typically Muslim restaurant, it would be outrageous.

    This is the ugly side of capitalism/globalism, when profits become more important than the local culture in which a company operates.

    There should now be a massive boycott of all KFC outlets in the UK but it won't happen, and I can see the dopey Brits accepting Halal meat as their only option once the dust has settled.

    muslims are such suckers for multinational garbage crap, they are usually low intelligence people who are easily brainwashed, no wonder that i see all muslims go to fastfood places and worship ronald mcdonalds as their new prophet, the fastfood places see them as a big money income and do this halal crap.

    If you want to eat chickens or parts of chickens who actually taste like chicken just visit your local butcher. The crap you can buy in fastfood restaurants is overcooked, overboiled and of the lowest possible quality. Do yourself a favour and boycott such restaurants.

    Supposedly there's about 10 million muslims in the US. We'll probably start seeing more of this kind of thing our way.

    Don't Go

    As Hersir and Thusnelda wrote, don't go to KFC. Go somewhere where you can get a real meal, or buy some good products at the grocery store and prepare your own meals. Most, if not all, fast food restaurants are a hazard to your health. They sell junk that you don't really need.

    It's not about whether or not the food is good, it's about the culture war,a nd how they will continue to insinuate themselves further and further and make more and more demands until we cave in or tell them to f-off.
