Skip to comments.Birmingham school apologises for ‘halal chicken’ sandwiches that contained bacon

A Birmingham school has apologised after it served bacon sandwiches to Muslim pupils by mistake.
Ninestiles school headmistress Chris Quinn issued a public apology to parents after baguettes supposedly containing halal chicken made it on to canteen shelves.
The mistake came to light when a Muslim teacher bit into one of the sandwiches at the secondary school, currently rated as outstanding by Ofsted.
Ms Quinn said the unfortunate labelling blunder was down to human error.
It has come to the schools notice that a small number of sandwiches, sold on July 17, 2013, which were labelled as halal, contained products which were not halal, she said.
The school apologises for this unfortunate mistake. It is an important part of Ninestiles ethos that we meet the dietary requirements of all our students and staff.
We apologise to anyone who inadvertently ate one of this small number of sandwiches.
The school added it would be reviewing its procedures and taking steps to ensure its suppliers meet their commitment to the schools expectations with regards to food standards.
They’ll all go to hell!! Or some other bad place...
As my Mom used to say: “Eat it or go hungry.”
So, as a result, are all those moslems going to go to hell....er twice?
chicken with bacon? sounds delicious to me...
Here’s the bit that gets me...The teacher who bit into the sandwich obviously knew what bacon tasted like.
Make your own damn lunch.
LOL so it wasn’t Allah-Bama
True. Beef or turkey bacon can taste semi close, but not as good.
I would become a Jew if I could eat bacon.
Pray for America to Wake Up
Beat me to it!
The muslim teacher that bit into the sandwich said, funny it doesn’t taste halal, it tastes good!
My brother served with the Army in Sinope, Turkey. One day the mess has pork chops and later on my brother rounded the corner in the kitchen and found one of the Muslims chowing down on some leftover chops. "You no tell, you no tell!" the guy pleaded. My brother told him it was no big deal and he wouldn't say anything.
All these religious restrictiosn on Halal or Kosher just seem to be hokum to me (like shunning contact with women, etc.). Perhaps in the biblical days it was needed but now it just seems to be a way to parade how orthodox you are.
Donning flame-proof undies. :-)
“I would become a Jew if I could eat bacon.”
Become a BBQ Jew.
“In his heart of hearts, a BBQ Jew believes that Moses led his people through the desert precisely to enjoy chopped pork. And that the Promised Land is not flowing with milk and honey, but barbecue and hush puppies.”
The most troubling aspect of this story is “Muslim teacher.”
LOL so it wasnt Allah-Bama”
Not yet but probably not far behind. See article posted on FR re closing schools on Friday in Tampa so mooslim children can make it to prayer on time.
There are also plenty of non pork alternatives that are pretty good in their own right. I personally like turkey bacon even though its not really all that much like real bacon.
I know a Jew who makes turkey ham of his own that’s better than any turkey ham you could ever buy.
Has anybody seen Obama eat a pork chop? Or visit a hog farm? Just asking...
Detroit gets the rap for having lots of muslims but they’re actually far outnumbered by the Chaldeans and Copts with more coming all the time.
She could perhaps have just seen that it looked like bacon without knowing what it would taste like.
So are they apologizing if they serve that halal garbage to normal people?
It said she bit into it and.....
How did the Muslim teacher know what it was?
And after having bitten into it, she could havr seen that the sandwich contained bacon.
So grateful Jesus declared all foods acceptable!
There are a couple of brands of turkey “bacon” that are very good - one is sold at Whole Foods. It’s as tasty as regular bacon but with less than half the fat.
I looked it up. Apparently not, since this was an accident:
"He has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah . But whoever is forced [by necessity], neither desiring [it] nor transgressing [its limit], there is no sin upon him."
...and exclaimed, Holy Mohammed, this is a good sandwich!
Kashrus is also one avenue of self discipline within Judaism’s religious context.
I’m sure the muslims view it somewhat similarly, in their twisted fashions...but they stole it anyway.
Bacon wins. Bwa hahahahahaha.
Sometimes you can just tell.
OK, it's clear, just force them then.
Nope, just a weiner. (and, of course, a real dog)
It's not like the school was forcing everybody to eat halal.
It's a mislabeled product. The school has apologized, as I think they should.
i don't like raspberries. If I buy a PBJ sandwich that has a label saying NO RASPBERRIES and I bite into it and find raspberries, I wouldn't like it.
The school made a mistake, and apologized.
No big deal, unless the "victim" gets all lawyered up and starts suing people.
Trader Joe’s used to sell Beef Bacon. It was fantastic on top of a cheeseburger.
That looks really yummy, what is it?
Just google bacon explosion.
There are recipes, and videos, and you can order it online and have it shipped to your door.
