Costco - The sell of Halal meats

383 of 460 Costco Reviews

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

It's not about the process of slaughtering the meat. It's the fee Costco and other firms pay to the Muslim agency that provides the "halal" cert. That money is taxed per Sharia law and given as alms. Per the Quran, 8 groups receive these alms, one such group are "Mujahadeen", or fighters for Allah. Hmmm, enjoy that chicken folks, and consider what part of some dude's ammo belt in Syria is supplied by your meal. Most folks aren't aware of this.....check it out for yourselves and consider boycotting those companies that are caving in to this extortion.

To the person who is "disturbed" by the catering of the Costco store to Muslims, I do not understand why you are disturbed, is it because you really don' t want to see Muslims being given any courtesy, because of what some terrorist who were just born from Muslim parents, are terrorists, they, unfortunately for them, because they will end killed, do not have a clue about the religion of Islam, those criminals, are NOT Muslims, anyone who terrorizes people, kills civilians, and cut their heads like they are slaughtering an animal, or use explosives to kill and destroy, are not human beings, but evil beasts.
I am a Muslim, and I know my religion very well, Islam does NOT approve killing of innocent people, it actually says in the holy book, that anyone who kills innocent oeople will be thrown in *** forever, and God will never accept him.
Coming back to the Halal issue and Costco providing the Halal meat, would you be disturbed, if there are any other "minority" group that would have some of their foods provided in stores?
For example, would you be dusturbed if you see Chinese foods, Indian foods, Japanese, any other kind of foods in the stores? Of course not!
You issue is that the Halal meats are provided for Muslims, I do not blame you, if I was not a Muslim, and did not know much about Islam, I would think like you, but I am writing this comment to tell you, and everyone who thinks like you, that there are a lot of true Muslims, in the US and other countries,

If you object to any particular store because they sell products that cater to the religious beliefs of their customer base, I suggest a reassessment of your patriotism is in order. This is the United States, we have this thing called religious freedom and this other thing called free enterprise. This means businesses can sell any legal product they choose. This means people can worship whatever deity they choose, be that Jehovah, Jesus, Allah, the flying spaghetti monster, or none at all. No one is forcing you to buy halal certified products if you don't want to. In conclusion, if you can't respect another person's beliefs, don't expect anyone to respect yours.

Do you have problem with Kosher items that Costco sells? Did you raise the voice against that too just like you did in this case? One can see your bias right on the face of it.
You have a choice to not buy halal meat and buy non-halal if you want to but by providing halal meat, COSTCO is providing other (Muslim) Americans the same choice beside you are a first non-muslim (except for jews) that I have come acress who says that he/she can not eat halal meat.

As a Costco member and a Muslim I am glad some Costco stores stock Halal meat. I wonder if this same consumer would be upset if the meat was Kosher. Boils down to a bigoted hatred for Muslims. Don't cave to Islamophobes any more than any business should cave to anti-Semites.

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?

Actually, you are exaggerating. The truth is no body limited your right to buy your choice of food. All Halal foods are labeled. You have the right to buy or not to buy. What you recommend is to deprive the rights of Muslims to buy their choice of food. I am not a Muslim, but I am OK with Costco selling whatever food meet the USDA and FDA standards. There are certain people don't like or don't eat beef at all, but you cannot forbid selling beef in the States. This is every body's America who shares the same believe of how to respect each other and enjoy freedom, it is not the America for those who think the country only belong to themselves.

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.

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..
