This email made me angry. People believe this stuff. In the 1st place, they don’t put Halal Meat In The supermarket to attract non believers of Islam to buy the product.

We need to worry about the other meat on the market with all Serious types of issues that Halal and Kosher meat don’t have. I buy Kosher & Halal meat & I’m Christian; it’s proven to be healthier.
