McDonald’s staff ‘deliberately put bacon inside Muslim family’s chicken sandwiches’

McDonald’s is being accused of an “intentional act of bigotry” by an advocacy group claiming a worker deliberately hid bacon in a Muslim family’s chicken sandwiches.

The family is “disturbed” by the act, which caused one adult to vomit twice, Khaula Hadeed, head of the Alabama chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told Alabama.com.

The video clip of the family finding the bacon was originally uploaded to Snapchat.

The council is reviewing CCTV cameras of the incident, and Mr Hadeed has called for the dismissal of any staff found to have been involved.




The family, who are from New York, ordered 14 chicken sandwiches from the fast food takeaway in Point Mallard Water Park in Decatur, Alabama.

Mr Hadeed said: “They started noticing it tasted different to them. They eat McChicken all the time at McDonald’s. They knew what they ordered — they know what’s in the sandwich.”

McDonald’s denied the claim and said it was not an intentional act, when contacted.

    When we know that a joint doesn’t serve halal. We shouldn’t be going there. Eat the burgers at the big chains in Middle East or Malaysia or Singapore or Indonesia where they are certified halal.

    Plus I am sure the chicken served wouldn’t be halal at Mc D.

    So we should stop giving business to them. Instead try to find a Muslim owned burger, pizza n sandwich joint and patronize them and eat halal.

    Our imaan can’t be sold for cheap burgers in a non halal joint.

    I rest my case and may Allah SWT give us the hidayah to eat halal and earn halal

    Nothing about McDonald’s is halal. With or without the bacon, any Muslim who eats there is in the wrong. In the Middle East, the McDonald’s chains go with halal irons because that is whay Muslims eat. Nowhere in America is McDonald’s halal. Might as well just eat the bacon and be happy about it because non – halal chicken is the same thing in the eyes of Allah.

    Bismilah…wether these brothers and sisters knew McDonald’s was halal or not the point still remains that the McDonald’s staff put something in their sandwich that shouldnt b there period! What if it was a person who had an allergy to pork….it cld have caused great harm! Its like giving sugar to a diabetic or salt to someone who has high blood pressure! Wether the customer is avoiding something for religious or for dietary reasons they had no right to do that!
