A Muslim Man’s ‘Not So Happy’ Meal

A Muslim man has filed a formal complaint against McDonald’s for what he found in his wrap sandwich.

Amir Ali, 37, a father and practicing Muslim complained: “But I took a bite and something else was in my mouth. I thought it was lettuce because I’ve never tasted bacon. I took it out and thought ‘God, that’s bacon. Everyone makes mistakes but something like this is very serious. I’m worried about my children going now.

That is better than the recent reports of traces of feces found in UK fast food and coffee shops, including McDonald’s in recent weeks.  But to a Muslim, pork is forbidden.

Why do Muslims abstain from pork?  The prohibition of pork in Islam is derived from the following verse of the Glorious Qur’an: “Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah.” [Al-Qur’an 5:3]

What do you think?  Whose responsibility is this?

McDonald’s has issued an apology.  “At McDonald’s,” restaurant staff wrote, “we want all our customers to enjoy their restaurant experience every time they visit. We’re disappointed that we didn’t get it right on this occasion.”
