    McDonald's restaurants drop halal food after suit

    Published June 24, 2013

    The only two McDonald's restaurants in the United States that serve food prepared according to Islamic law have stopped doing so.
    The fast food giant and a Michigan franchise owner agreed to a $700,000 legal settlement in April after a customer sued.
    The fast-food giant said in a statement Monday that the locations in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, which has a large Muslim population, no longer offer a halal McChicken sandwich or Chicken McNuggets "to focus on our national core menu."
    The corporation says it takes into account "local and dietary preferences." Neither the statement nor a spokeswoman said whether the decision was related to the lawsuit.
    The settlement is being shared by the customer, a Muslim-run Detroit health clinic, Dearborn's Arab American National Museum and lawyers.

    Pretty ridiculous, expecting teenagers, the large segment of employees at fast food restaurants, to be responsible to enough to prepare food according to religious standards.

    I fully support McDonalds serving "halal food". Assuming it's in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Kuwait, etc. They can chow down all they want there.

    Why is McDonald's catering to these people anyway. Come in to America and assimilate.

    Yeah, all move the McDonald's out of community that won't eat their food. There's an idea. :jj:

    *"or move" not "all move" :facepalm:

    If you are dumb enough or immature enough to eat their crap food, you deserve what you get.

    Halal & Kosher slaughter establishments should be made to follow standard animal welfare laws & pre-stun before the throat gets slit.

    I agree. However overseas McD's has done very well catering to the foreign clientele with Veggie burgers & broccoli pies so they probably figured they could try it here. Big fail as FlaFla pointed out.

    i saw on the travel channel there's a mcdonald's in israel which is TOTALLY KOSHER! im sure they stick to standards because it's the only standard applied at that restaurant. if they want halal certified, open up a mcdonald's in saudi arabia and serve all the non god offending food you want. im pretty sure they won't fuck it up since the penalty is prolly death.

    as long as spit, boogers and pubic hair are within those religious standards, i think they can handle it.
