I am upset because Costco has chosen to take the path of caving into the minority at the expense of the majority.

By selling Halal meats you are automatically offending the vast number of Americans that deem this offensive.

Is there not a venue for the Muslims to buy at their own stores that will cater to their religion or must the rest of us just accept this is the New America?

Most of us have religious beliefs far removed from this--we don't count???

I have been a satisfied customer but this has reallly disturbed me so may have to rethink my membership status.

Thank you.

Thank you

Most halal meat stores sell low quality meat.
Do you think as an American I should not be allowed to buy quality food for my family because I am a Muslim?

COSTCO doesn't "CAVE IN" to anyone! If they can make money in a certain market they will. The minute it doesn't make them money they will stop. That is called AMERICAN FREE ENTERPRISE

Don't come to the U.K. Seems all the chicken here is halal, but at least they are required by law to post signs notifying consumers of such.

Wow so many racist, discrminatory, and satanic views. Let people live. Islam is a religion of Abraham, Adam & Eve, Moses, and Jesus ( May peace be upon them all) we follow their values. Abraham hand slaughtered his meat with the name of One God, that is the path we follow. We were taught by these prophets to avoid alcohol and Pork. This is what Halal means to us. Shame on Racism Shame on satanic views.

I have a few chicken cuts in my freezer, just took a look, don't see any mention of halal. I wonder if this is a Photoshop creation

proceeds from halal certifying goes to fund terror.. that should be enough of a reason not to buy halal!! another is the fact that animals are slaughtered inhumanly.. there throats cut whilst still alive hanging upside down in terror.. all to serve a death cult who's backward religion is dragging the world back to the 7th centaury if anyone on this page is ignorant its the morons who bang on about if you don't like a product don't buy it.. many companies don't highlight the fact that there products are halal so by stealth you are funding terror and supporting the ritual torture animals.. and as for the studies that say halal meat is better show me the evidence because studies done by animal welfare agencies suggest otherwise.. animals die in a high state of terror that makes them produce hormones which are detrimental to the meat..

Oh boy. Is there a way to slaughter chicken "humanly"? Unless we all become vegetarians and don't slaughter chicken & others AT ALL, that would be acting "humanly", according to you. You take it easy about funding terror. I am off to buy my chicken. :grin

Ann Barnhardt is a cattle commodities broker, has more about "Halal."

NEVER buy meat that is marked as "Halal."
I am in the cattle business, and believe me when I tell you that Halal kill plants are CONSTANTLY being cited and shut down by the USDA for horrific infractions. Most of these plants are in Michigan and upstate New York ..

One of the things that halal kill plants are notorious for is putting already-dead animals in the human consumption line. They will go pick up a dead cow off of a farm or ranch and instead of putting it in their rendering tank where the resulting "tankage" is worth pennies on the dollar as pet food or industrial products, they will shackle the dead animal on the normal kill line and process it as human food which is the highest-dollar product.

Since Islam teaches dishonesty (taqiyyah) and no regard for one's neighbor, this kind of sickening behavior is standard.

Halal plants are also notorious for general citations for filth and uncleanliness. I have toured normal cattle slaughter plants, and guys, you could eat off of the floor. Everything is white and men walk around with water hoses and steam guns constantly keeping everything in a state of spotlessness.

Halal plants are filthy. A lot of Halal meat is also labeled as "organic."

Again, don't be fooled into thinking that "halal" means "better." It isn't.

No regard for ones neighbour and lying. Go educate yourself before passing on false intentional claims. We follow the views of Jesus ( May peace be upon him) and he never taught us that. Racism never wins, it's satanic.
