The meaning of Halal
Simply stated, food that is Halal Certified is food that has been prepared in accordance with Muslim Sharia law. Note the following information we got from HalalChoices.com website:
To be halal certified the animal must be facing Mecca, have its throat cut while still alive and then ritually sacrificed by a Muslim who recites a prayer dedicating the slaughter to Allah. Fees must be paid to one of the certifying organisations for this service. Islamic certifying organisations benefit financially from providing this service. They receive a constant stream of funds to support Islamic projects which contribute to the advancement of sharia (Islamic law) here and around the world. source Halal Choices
Now, is this true? Are Butterball turkeys Halal Certified?
We found this on the official Butterball website:
As an international turkey provider, we have the expertise in serving different countries and different customs, and will work with you to meet any and all product needs. We have met the requirements for the following certifications: USDA Approved, Russian Approved, Halal Certified, and employ a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HAACP) food safety system with Good Manufacturing processes. From great customer service to new product innovation to the proper certifications, Butterball has the experience you need to get our great tasting turkey in your market. source Butterball web site
Butterball turkeys are, by their own admission, certified for consumption under strict Sharia Law guidelines. This means that the animals must be facing Mecca when they are killed, and that they are killed in the name of Allah. A fee is paid for this certification by Butterball to Sharia-based certifying organizations who in turn send the money to support Islamic programs, including Jihad, all over the world. If you buy a Butterball turkey, a percentage from that sale is sent directly to Islamic programs.
Nuthin but cheap turkey for me anyway.
So that button that pops up is detonator switch?
I’ve eaten my last Butterball. I won’t support a company that supports Muslims.
I do not know how slaughtering these turkeys using halal and Kosher rules means BB is supporting terrorism.
What has been verified is that BB uses halal and Kosher rules for slaughter, they have not verified they yell islamic slogans.
Or you can support terrorism without the blessing by filling your gas tank...
I only eat shotgun killed certified turkeys.
Butterballs were $1.99 a pound at my grocery store. I chose a much less expensive brand at .54 cents a pound. It’s how you cook the things that make them good not the brand. IMHO.
Sadly, we only learned this after purchasing a Butterball turkey breast. I think Tyson products are halal, too. If they aren’t, then we’ve boycotted them for no reason. Gotta check the Tyson website now.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
This isn't supporting terrorism.
Actually we do.. we buy our gas at an Indian reservation that sells Canadian gas ..but that aside.. on the day one is supposed to give thanks to God... one eats meat offered to allah...
Maybe it was their support for Klintoon?
Oh that right there is FUNNY!!!
Of course, turkey is halal.
Here’s the BS. It’s the kosher tax canard dressed up with new characters.
” A fee is paid for this certification by Butterball to Sharia-based certifying organizations who in turn send the money to support Islamic programs, including Jihad, all over the world. If you buy a Butterball turkey, a percentage from that sale is sent directly to Islamic programs.”
Here’s the original version of this old anti-Semitic canard: “The “Kosher tax” (or “Jewish tax”) is a canard or urban legend spread by antisemitic, white supremacist and other extremist organizations. They state that unwilling food companies and unwitting consumers are forced to pay money to Jewish organizations to support Zionist causes and Israel.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kosher_tax_(antisemitic_canard))
These folks are getting intellectually pretty lazy. They’re simply recycling anti-Semitic BS and replacing “Muslims” with “Jews”. I’m waiting for the “Protocols of the Elders of Istanbul”.
That should be a hoot.
