BURTON-ON-TRENT, UK -- A diner was left furious after a KFC restaurant refused to sell him a bacon burger - because it wasnt halal.
Alan Phillips was told the restaurant was no longer selling his favourite Big Daddy burger, which contains a chicken burger with bacon, cheese and salad, because it had decided to sell only halal food.
The Burton-on-Trent branch is one of the 86 out of 750 British KFC restaurants which is now selling 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.

England. I weep for the memory of what you were.
That KFC may soon be out of business. . . unless they are in a predominately muslim neighborhood.
Dhimmitude is Britain’s modern scourge. If nothing is done, as is apparent, it will die in agony.
Also happened in France, with the huge chain, “Quick” —no more burgers with bacon, cuz Allah’d want it that way.
Frenchies in Lyon went NUTS, busted in there in big groups, wearing Pig Head masks, telling them to go home.
What will happen when they tell French wine makers to pack it in?
King Farouk Chicken?
“Chicken burger”? That deserves to be taken off the menu!
No matter how bad it gets here, we’re still not as miserable as the poor Brits.
Is Corkey’s in England?
So it will be called KFH?
A similar instance occured near me in the Chicago area last year where a Muslim Dunkin Donuts franchise operator refused to sell the sausage breakfast sandwiches because they had pork in them. Dunkin Donuts pulled the Franchise license and he closed.
Who goes to KFC for a burger?
Can’t they sell both? I mean have your normal food for normal people and then have your ‘halal’ food for your disgusting knuckle dragging savage clientele? The savages won’t chop your head off for offering choice will they? ...oh wait never mind.
It’s worse than that. Church’s Chicken is a chain in the US that is now owned by muslims. No bacon burgers there either.
I love DD, love them even more now.
I'm really surprised there were not mass protests by Rage Boy wanna be's
If KFC pulls this goathumper's franchise, I will fly to the UK tonight and eat a bacon cheeseburger at the nearest one to these muzzy scum that DOES.
Whats that smell! Did someone slaughter a goat in here? No, seriously, I wanna know! —from Postal, the first-person shooter computer game
I didn’t know Church’s was owned by muslims. How much longer are people going to tolerate this crap?
Since when did KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken) start selling burgers!
Next time I go to KFC I am ording something with bacon (or pork fat) in it!~
No flaming. Just a sad realization of what it represents.
I think in Britian they think any round meat between two pieces of bread is a “burger”. We would just call it a chicken sandwich.
However; I think KFC should be able to optimize their market. If a KFC in a Muslim neighborhood can sell more by dumping pork. Go for it.
But these days you need to watch the overall bottom line, how many sales are lost in response what is seen as knuckling under to the Muslims.
I have to agree with you. I’m just disgusted by it.
I see it as similar to the decision of whether or not to allow smoking in your bar or restaurant. Unfortunately, government has taken the smoking decision away from businesses. Should it do the same with pork?
Remember we have a muslim sympathizer in office, along with a bunch of dhimmicrats who just raped millions of Americans with Obamacare. It wouldn't take anything now to declare pork unhealthy or offensive. Maybe tax the heck out of it.
This is most likely a franchise, which means he has to abide by the franchise agreement. Most franchises are locked into buying food and supplies from a company owned or approved supplier so every franchise has the same logo on the cup, fork, napkin, size portion, taste, products, menu and even range of price.
Imagine if every Miley D's decided what went on the menu. You would drive up and not know what was available.
Some might have sweet corn bread with a side of collard greens according to the local population in some rural place or a "real" tossed salad in SF :)
I have no idea what the UK’s KFC franchise agreement requires. My use of the term “restaurant owners” can also be read as “franchisor.”
It’s still a business decision and my argument applies. I don’t like the Islamization of the U.K. or anyplace else but businesses will do what they think is best to turn a profit.
And it's dangerous as every customer is contributing to the halal certification process. Basically paying a muslim tax, the proceeds going to heaven knows what besides "dawah."
Many KFC's outside the US serve (chicken) burgers, and fries. (Home delivery options in Dubai HERE)
They have halal menus in the middle east, and Asia too... when they even serve rice.
Sad to see this expanding in EUrabia.
I think it is common to have common core items shared by the whole chain. Certain franchises may offer experimental or local items although they have to be approved by the corporation. Prices, of course, can vary considerably by region even at McDonalds.
Soon to come to the United States of America.
Chicken burger with bacon and cheese? Well, if I really wanted that and they wouldn’t sell it to me, I would return with my own pound of cooked bacon, order the sandwich, sit down in the middle of the place, and take my time adding my bacon. Eat the sandwich and then just sit there and slowly eat the bacon that wouldn’t fit. Bacon I like, not so much with chicken, though.
