KFC diner told 'you can't have bacon in your burger here - we're now halal'
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.
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 can't believe a chain like this has taken this stance,' he said. 'Staff told me that due to the dietary laws halal meat could not be prepared in the same place as other meats, so I couldn't have my bacon.
It was like they were saying I couldn't 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 wouldn't be forced to eat non-halal meat.
'I have no problem with them selling halal meat, but I would like the choice.'

‘I have no problem with them selling halal meat”
excerpts: “Halal slaughter involves cutting the trachea, the esophagus and the jugular vein and letting the blood drain out while saying, ‘Bismillah allahu akbar’ ‘in the name of Allah the greatest,’” explains Pamela Geller, author of “Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.” “Many people refuse to eat it on religious grounds. Many Christians, Hindus or Sikhs and Jews find it offensive to eat meat slaughtered according to Islamic ritual
He notes New Testament instructions specifically warning Christians:
“Stay away from food that has been offered to idols (which makes it unclean), any kind of sexual sin, eating animals that have been strangled, and blood.” (Acts 15:20, New Century Version)
“As for the Gentile Christians, all we ask of them is what we already told them in a letter: They should not eat food offered to idols, nor consume blood, nor eat meat from strangled animals, and they should stay away from all sexual immorality” (Acts 21:25 New Living Translation).
“A lot of times, when you are importing food from large meat-producing regions such as New Zealand or Denmark, these meats are already slaughtered in the Islamic guidelines,” she said. “A lot of their trade is with the Middle East, and they don’t know where everything is going. All meat they export is halal standard. If it happens to go to the U.S. or England, nobody knows, since it’s not always advertised or labeled.”
Omar added: “Perhaps what should be talked about more here is less about halal, and more about food-industry standards for labeling food properly. Certainly, if someone does not want to have halal, they should be clearly informed that the food product is halal. All consumers deserve the right to be informed of what they are eating.”
They've all closed. I think the chain is going down.
Chick-Fil-A is kicking their but and they don’t even have plain fried chicken other than nuggets and strips.
KFC is a part of the dumbest company name I can think of recently, YUM!, that bought KFC, Taco Bell, & Pizza Hut from PepsiCo. It’s based in Louisville, KY.
They are heavily franchised so those closings could be the area franchise.
I used to work for the Pentagon, now I help you to get your chicken on. And for a limited time only, order an eight-piece Nappy Meal, and get a 32-ounce malt liquor absolutely free. Lord have mercy. Introducing the Nappy Meal from G.F.C. This chicken is the bomb. At the General's, we do chicken right-on!

In Britain, they serve chicken sandwiches that they call "burgers." For more information and for their position on halal food surf over to http://www.kfc.co.uk
Yet another reason for me not go to KFC ever again. I also avoid any food truck with the word Halal on it.
