Subway In UK Drop Bacon and Ham From Menu To Comply With Islamic Law Jared May Be Next

May 2, 2014

Nearly 200 Subway restaurants across the United Kingdom no longer serve bacon or ham, and will instead serve only halal-prepared meat in an effort to “balance the values of many religious communities,” according to the Daily Mail. Some 185 participating locations will replace the pork products with turkey versions, and notify customers of their compliance with the Islamic practice of preparing meat with signs reading ,”all meats areHalal.” Halal preparations include requiring that the animal be slaughtered by someone who invokes the name of Allah before slitting the animal’s throat. All blood must be drained from its veins, among other requirements. Jared Fogle from a Jewish family may be next.
