Costco - The sell of Halal meats

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 so much the Halal meat that i have a problem with althougth I'm not interested in purchasing it or consuming it but rather the type of clientel that it draws. While my local Costco was selling this Halal meat, I had serveral confrontations with Muslim men. Two grabbed and stopped my cart so they could walk on front of me. Another reached around the spit guard the wrong way and snatched the sample i was reaching for. I felt very theatened and felt like i needed to bring my husband with me to shop at Costco. However, just last week while while shopping, I didnt experience any threatening behavior towards me by muslim men. Later I realized it was because the don't carry Halal meat anymore :-)
Thank you Costco!

You are an ignorant racist person. I know people in the western countries have very little to no knowledge about other faiths.
Muslims and Jews consume meats which are processed according to their religious laws. Can you tell me Why you just picked on Halal meat? What about Jewish Kosher meats or do you eat that?
Stop your trash and shop from your smelly supermarket meat

Halal, while probably being more healthful, could be considered by many to be an upgrade choice of some meats. Fans of pork need look through all the other Costco choices of a great variety of foods. Don't like it? - Don't buy it. Simple. Stop advertising your ignorance.

halal meat is the same as any meat, MEAT. And sadly, there are not that many halal meat shops or anything similar at every corner of this country, otherwise you would be shouting "THE TERRORISTS ARE TAKING OVER". Calm down, and please learn what halal meat is before you assume you are marginalized.

Halah means more than just the way Muslims prepare the meats.It also includes the practice of Shahada, meaning professing that there is only one god Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. So if you are of a different faith this would be offensive. Meats offered to idols.

Hello. Do you know what Halal Meat means? This doesn't mean that it is strictly for Muslims. Halal meat means how the animal is slaughtered. When an animal is electrocuted or beaten up, the blood is still in the animals body, which is not healthy. When animals are slaughtered the Halal way, which is really fast, using a knife, and through the neck, the animal lets out all of its blood and slaughtered immediately and not after hours of being beaten. This is what is meant by halal meat. I know of people who are not Muslims and they only eat halal meat. Read about it and understand the true meaning behind it. And please m, don't go to yahoo answeres.

I would go for Kosher and Halal meat any day. It is far far superior and safe for the human body than regular mass market factory produced meat.

Unfortunately, there is a high level of ignorance about halal. Rather than posting uninformed and ignorant opinions, I request the public to properly research Halal animal slaughter. Aside from taking God's name (Allah is Arabic for the Jewish/Christian God, Muslims worship the same God), the animal slaughtered by Halal standards is drained of blood and cleared of impurities and carcinogens. Please research and understand Halal before forming opinions.

Not shopping at Costco anymore. Halal killing is tortuous to the animal.

This is the world we live in now! Everyone talks about "unity"...people from all nationalities have come here to live in freedom and peace but once here they want their own neighborhoods, cities and soon states. They want their own religion, and get rid of ours. What should we expect...we have a muslim president.

All Costco need to clearly liable all Hala products! If not shut them down. I am going to cancel my membership with costco and Sams Club, Walmart involved with this *** too. We will just eat locally butchered meat or none at all costco and Walmart will be the loosers!

This is the most ignorant comment I have ever read. Halal certified animal requires that animal must be disease free and healthy (meaning must be able to walk around and not some steroid, hormones pumped mass of flesh). I would rather eat Halal certified meat than to eat whatever you are feeding yourself. Clearly it has an impact on your brain.

Halal means the animal is killed by slitting their throat and letting them bleed to death which is very inhumane. I don't shove my religion down anyone's throat nor do I want another religion shoved down mine.
I have just renewed my membership, but I won't renew, since Costco is offending the majority of their customers by selling Halal meats.

Why don't you have similar concerns regarding Costco's offering kosher products to their customers? What's your knowledge of halal meat? Both kosher and halal meat are of higher standards than their counterparts. A little higher than your standards, it appears...

You're nuts! Read how they kill animals and how unsanitary the places are where they package and send them from.

Good. They have plenty more customers in replacement of one sulking consumer including the muslim community. Although, I reckon you wont really leave.
