DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – A judge has approved a long-awaited $700,000 settlement between a Dearborn McDonalds and people who say they ate chicken sandwiches, that should have been prepared as HALAL: the Muslim equivalent of Kosher. FUCK THEM. TELL THEM DONT EAT THERE. LINK: http://detroit.cbslocal.com/2013/04/17/d...mcdonalds/#

Quoted from the linked article
Quote:The lawsuit technically covered anyone who bought the halal-advertised products between September 2005 and January from the restaurant...

I'd say they have a case. Maybe not against McDonald's as a whole, but at least against the franchise owner who advertised them as Halal.

Back when the case came out, I felt the same as das, but when you read what actually happened, that local franchise was ADVERTISING that the food was religiously safe for this group of people. Therefore, they need to sell the product as advertised.

It would have been the same for any other group of people who needed a certain diet, and the restaurant advertised that certain diet, but actually did not make sure the food followed the diet.

Now, why McDonalds even TRIED to advertise a Muslim diet is a discussion for another day....

Gotta agree, at the very least it was false advertising. I would feel the same way if they had advertised the food as being Kosher and it later came out that it wasn't. The second that franchisee decided to advertise that way the opened themselves up to a court date.

Good thing we hold Politicians to that standard.

Don't I wish my friend. However just because we don't hold the pols to that level doesn't mean that we shouldn't hold others to that level.

If they were told it was halal, it needs to be halal. That's only right. I don't like or agree with their religious beliefs, but it's important to them that it be done a certain way so if you're telling them you're doing it that way...you better do it.
