Image of the Halal Stamp on Costco lamb.
"Halal brand appears on retail meat packs and point of sale and guarantees that the meat has come from an animal that has been slaughtered according to the strict Islamic Shariah. Before slaughter the lamb's head is pointed toward Mecca, the butcher says a muslim prayer and "pronounces the name of Allah."
I just received this info from a fellow Tea Party Patriot. This is the absolute truth ... and what a cruel joke on Orthodox Christians ...
We just got our leg of lamb for Easter, and my husband noticed a funny stamp on it with arabic type writing. We investigated and find out that it is the Halal Stamp. Before slaughter the lamb's head is pointed toward Mecca, the butcher says a muslim prayer and "pronounces the name of Allah."
We are returning our lamb to Costco and trying to find one that is NOT HALAL. The butcher at our local Meijer lamb verified its lamb is also has Halal. Jewel and Whole Foods is OK, so we've been told by the butchers.
This is disgusting....we purchase a whole lamb from our local farmer....which I’m sure he doesn’t point to mecca to slaughter
Thanks for posting.
Like many, I really did not understand the whole meaning of Halal....and I am usually very aware of the various Muslim practices.
Your posting will be helpful to many. Much appreciated
