DETROIT (AP) — A judge on Wednesday finalized a $700,000 settlement between McDonald's Corp. and members of Michigan's Muslim community over claims a suburban Detroit restaurant falsely advertised its food as prepared according to Islamic law.

If they specifically advertise it, and do not follow through, then I have little sympathy for McDonald’s in this case.

McDonald's was extremely stupid to advertise its products based on Islamic law.

Stupid like the Obama Administration who gives taxpayer money to the Islamic Brotherhood and other terrorist groups.

I agree. McDonald’s attempt to pander bit them in the rear. They deserve to be penalized for being stupid.

I’m not even sure the food is prepared to American law. I do not react well to soy, ditto for McD’s hamburgers. I doubt the 100% beef ads.

Apparently money and weapons do not have to be prepared according to Islamic law. Just food.

I learned something new today.

Yep. Like a restaurant advertising they are Kosher and you find out the kitchen help is making Quesedillas and Carnitas on the same grill they cook the fish.

Not Kewool...

Good analogy.

McDonald's needs to take out their checkbook.

...and that’s why I no longer eat there!

The McDonald’s that replies to muzzies’ demands by posting a sign, “Our products meet all regulatory requirements for wholesomeness, healthiness, & sanitary preparation. Period!” will experience an avalanche of customers a la Chick Fil-A.

Worth noting: Mickey D’s in U.K. which declared their menu “100% `halal’” have wound up out of business as angry “infidels” took their business elsewhere.

I hear what you’re saying, but come on, $700,000.00 dollars? Seriously?

Anything over $50,000.00 dollars is an outrage, and IMO something much less than that was warranted here.

I will not patronize any restaurant that claims halal status. BTW in England many schools take the easy way out if they have a small number of Muzzie students. They buy halal meat and sometimes don’t tell the non-muzz students.

I am sure kickbacks to the halal meat distributor are going on. He gets the profits instead of the conventional meat distributor. Follow the money trail

Any McDs that advertised that type of food near me would be boycotted ....in a big way.

(Not that the food is bad...just that I no longer have tolerance for that religion. None. Whatsoever.)

Kosher hot dogs are eaten by everyone due to perception they are higher grade. Might be reality too.

Well the sand monkeys got a better deal from McDonalds then my daughter who was refused permission to leave work to go to the emergency room while pregnant and suffering strong cramping.

The baby died hours later.

No lawyer wants to go after the big Mac.

This mackerel snapper practically grew up on Hebrew National lebanon bologna, liverwurst, & kosher franks. They were the best.

Some of the best meals can be found at a Jewish deli. Some are kosher, and some aren’t. A great sandwich is chopped liver on turkey. Yum.

If only Jews ate Hebrew National they would have gone broke years ago.

The meat is 100% beef. The soy filler is 100% soy. Its easy to get confused in Americas food supply.

I hope that you mean places like Taco Bell or Pizza hut. Those places make a mockery of the cultures they represent just to make American's crappy palate happy. :P

Piffle, the entire US domestic water supply is tainted by pork molecules. If you’re muzzie and in the US, you’re going to hell, so leave now.
