McDonald's restaurants drop halal food after suit Published June 24, 2013 Associated Press 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.
