RaceBannon is correct, Halal is not Kosher, observant Jews don't eat Halal meat, it's a non issue.

As I understand it, Kosher meat is Halal, though not approved by the correct authority. In the early days of Gitmo, we served prisoners Kosher MREs, with no complaints. Now we have Kosher and Halal MREs.

Description of Kosher & Halal MREs What’s in each case?

Meal, Religious, Kosher/Halal

Even Kosher for Passover MREs, Kosher, halal MREs feed religious diversity

BBQ MREs will be available by summer.

Of possible interest, an article I didn't bother to post today. Rabbis: EU meat label bid an 'insult' , which relates to the practice of stunning, which the Euros would like to require, as the Swedes have, which makes Kosher slaughter illegal, though under Halal it's fine. Slice the throat after stunning the animal.

I believe the strict Islamic law of slaughter, which is closer to Kashrut other than blessings, is called Dhabihah, but it's not an issue most places.
