McDonald’s Pays $700,000 to Dearborn Muslims for Allegedly Serving non-Halal Chicken

McDhimmis. David Wood at Answering Muslims comments:

Some Dearborn Muslims may have been given non-halal chicken at McDonalds. It could have been worse, however. They could have been thrown in jail for answering questions, as we were at the 2010 Arab Festival. But apparently what happens to Christians doesn’t matter in Dearborn.

DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) – McDonald’s and one of its franchise owners agreed to pay $700,000 to members of the Muslim community to settle allegations a Detroit-area restaurant falsely advertised its food as being prepared according to Islamic dietary law.

McDonald’s and Finley’s Management Co. agreed Friday to the tentative settlement, with that money to be shared by Dearborn Heights resident Ahmed Ahmed, a Detroit health clinic, the Arab American National Museum in Dearborn and lawyers.

Ahmed’s attorney, Kassem Daklallah, told The Associated Press on Monday that he’s “thrilled” with the preliminary deal that’s expected to be finalized March 1. McDonald’s and Finley’s Management deny any liability but say the settlement is in their best interests.

The lawsuit alleged that Ahmed bought a chicken sandwich in September 2011 at a Dearborn McDonald’s but found it wasn’t halal — meaning it didn’t meet Islamic requirements for preparing food. Islam forbids consumption of pork, and God’s name must be invoked before an animal providing meat for consumption is slaughtered.

Daklallah said there are only two McDonald’s in the United States that sell halal products and both are in Dearborn, which has one of the nation’s largest Arab and Muslim communities. Overall, the Detroit area is home to about 150,000 Muslims of many different ethnicities.

The locations advertise that they exclusively sell halal Chicken McNuggets and McChicken sandwiches and they have to get those products from an approved halal provider, Dakallah said. He said there was no evidence of problems on the production side, but he alleges that the Dearborn location on Ford Road sold non-halal products when it ran out of halal.

      They should leak information to only ONE person that Pig Fat is used is their French Fries & see what happens…

      If nothing happens, leak to another ONE person that Bacon grease is used to cook the hamburgers & see what happens… etc.

      Keep going until the Leak is found… then FIRE the SOB for breaking the secret Company non-disclosure agreement!! LOL

      Is there a fricken LAW about the damn Habal FOOD?!
      If so, McDonalds should just ignore it and prepare the food they way THEY & the rest of the world WANT IT!

  1. As most truly conservative Americans know and realize, Islamist are not our friends and they have a plan to dispose of America from within by our own miserable hands, bankrupting America is one vital aspect of achieving domination on America soil, so, its best not to allow Mosque or Imams on American soil if this country is to continue as a freedom and liberty republic, it looks like Islamist and the leftist with this administration are moving quickly to achieve their stealth jihad.

  2. Hell, McDonalds should be putting Bacon grease, pork, etc. in everything they sell!
    … and fully advertise it that way…
    If they don’t like it F***’em!

  3. Does McDonald’s sell kosher food too?

    They are wrong to say food is halal if it is not. Period.

    Why on earth even go there and sell halal Ronald McDonald? Greed!!

    If we don’t stop God will turn away.

    • Good point… if pickles are NOT kosher, the Jewish community could sue McD for a few million$ too! … let’s see is there another religion / group that is being missed? We could always MAKE one! LOL

      I wish McDonalds would hold their ground and TALK BACK to the bastards!
      … I’m getting SO SICK of them taking charge as if they owned the country!
      … Well, they don’t yet… and there will be a lot blood shed if it really gets closer to being that way! The shit is going to hit the fan pretty soon where they will be put into their place! … at least I hope so…

      • Religious Jews are quite aware that there’s nothing Kosher about McDonald’s food. No religious Jew would ever eat at one. I mean, a Kosher McDonald’s sounds like it might work if someone actually tried to open and run one, but it just wouldnt BE a McDonalds if it was Kosher. No mixing meat and dairy (no cheeseburgers or salads mixing chicken/turkey with cheese), etc.

  4. I don’t think, and I hope that, McDonald’s would ever waste its time performing Islamic ritual slaughter on the massive amount of beef and poultry it buys, or screwing around with its own food purchasing supply chain by buying from halal-certified vendors. McDonald’s is in to low prices and efficiency. The halal food movement represents high prices & inefficient slaughter methods which are incompatible with mass food production & distribution.

    The real fraud is by the consumer litigants who claimed to believe this McDonald’s was actually selling halal products.

    Legal jihad continues.

    This is also a way of exploiting the U.S. court system to enforce sharia-compliant food standards by attacking any business that claims to be halal but isn’t sufficiently halal in the eyes of the sharia advocates.

  5. close it, and every other western business there. That was a rigged setup and the money will arm our enemies. Follow where the cash goes, we may be able to make this right yet. Infidels are NOT supposed to do business with muslims. What were they thinking opening there? Close it. Whoever awarded that money needs to NOt be a judge.

  6. Those food prepared by moslems are most disgusting.
    Hopefully, us nonbelievers can avoid their moslems infested place and their horrible moslems imposition.

  7. This is why we need to keep religion out of the public food chain. If Muslims want religious foods, let them open their own businesses to meet that need, so the non-believers don’t have to worry about noncompliance lawsuits, etc.

      • I favor the exporting idea. You are lucky that you posted your comment before they can get their Blasphemy Law passed. They say that so called Blasphemy Laws are necessary to “PREVENT SPEECH THAT HURTS THE RELIGIOUS FEELING OF MUSLIMS”. Now if that isn’t a crock of shit, I don’t know what is.

  12. Is the $700,000.00 in lieu of, or in addition to the welfare payments the community gets. Do Americans know we pay welfare for 4 wives and 20 children for muslims? They bring their deceit, cunning and corruption with them everywhere.

    “Rags, wretchedness, poverty and dirt, those signs and symbols that indicate the presence of Moslem rule.”-Mark Twain

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
