KFC diner told 'you can't have bacon in your burger here - we're now halal'

If you see this sign on a take away it means Halal. In Muslim abattoirs the animal is not stunned when slaughtered. It has it's throat slit and is hung upside down until it dies. This is extremly cruel because the blood goes to the head and it can take in excess of five minutes for the animal to die.

The Daily Mail reports

A diner was left fuming after a KFC restaurant took his favourite meal off the menu because it breached their new halal regulations.
Alan Phillips was told he would have to travel five miles to another branch if he wanted the Big Daddy, a chicken burger, topped with bacon, cheese and salad.
The branch, in Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, is one of 86 KFC restaurants which is running trials of a scheme where they sell nothing other than halal meat.

Trial: This KFC in Burton-on-Trent is one of 86 stores to be selling nothing other than halal meat during the next few months
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. Read more:

The Big Johns fast food chain is 100% Halal.
Note the discrite Halal insignia in the corner of the sign.

Many microwave products sold in Asain shops are also Halal
