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

Sad sad part of America...Halal meat is very healthy and better than organic. You do not turn Muslim if you eat it.

Do not worry. Does kosher bother you too??

This is an opinion of a disgruntled customer. It does not help me with my question.

Then again I don't know why the customer is upset at Costco. They are satisfying the local population.

I bought the grass fed halal ground beef and plan to do it again. Not that it matters, but I am a middle aged Nebraska lady.

It was excellent quality at a great price. Good on Costco for being a supplier for people who actually need/want their meat to be halal. You sound like an absolute idiot, by the way, with your racist mumbling about people needing to shop in “their own stores”. If nonchristians can navigate through all the Christmas and Easter nonsense every year, you can push your cart past some halal meat as it really does not effect you in the slightest.

Be a better Christian.

Show a little tolerance. Costco is everyone’s store who is willing to buy the membership.

It is difficult to shop for certain items in Cosco and then go to a different place to buy Halal meat because few people don't like that. Why they are worried about others products.

You idiot. All you have to do is just walk past the halal meat.

It’s not that big at all. Also I believe this is a business decision by Costco.

As it sees a market. Good on them.

Wrong. It is an abomination to God for you to eat food which has been dedicated to an idol or foreign God.

You're upset for no reason. Nobody is forcing you to buy anything you don't want to however Costco is allowed to sell to people other than you and increase their consumer base as well as their profit line.

Also Muslims are Costco membership too, as are various other groups.

I'm happy when I see more diversity at Costco and know that whether I want a halal product, kosher product, vegan product etc I can get it. It's called capitalism and I'm pretty sure they're doing much better at it than you are.

It is an abomination to God for one to eat food which has been dedicated to a foreign god, idol or entity. If the product isn't clearly labeled it is certified Hallel, then unsuspecting or uninformed people could purchase it for consumption.

Kosher foods are marked, as are hallel. However, if a store decides to provide hallel meat exclusively, it isn't necessarily labeled as such- like Burger King.

God gave us rules to follow. If you abide by them, good for you.

You will get rewarded.

If not, well then again, you do have free will. If you don't have any preferences for how your meat is prepared, then this is a non-issue.

Oh stop your whining like a petulant little child who fears their world is shrinking and they're no longer relevant in it. Well that much is true, no one cares if you don't like this.

This is about $$$$. Costco's goal is to make money. It's that simple. What better way to do that than to offer @#$ that a group with money wants?

They kill two birds with one stone. Jews can enjoy Halal meat believe it or not. Muslims can enjoy Kosher stuff if no wine is used in ti. Do you whine when you hit the Asian or Hispanic aisles at your grocery store?

No, you keep stepping and go about your (chuckle) pathetic life. Costco and other companies aren't caving to anything other than that all might $$$$. When it comes to your petty little hurt feeling or making $$$$, your feelings mean deek to them or any other for profit group.

Sorry but you're just not that important anymore.. As if you ever were..

Halal, Kosher.......thank you Costco for offering diverse food that reflects the diversity of the People of America. For the ignorants, extremism and closed-minded people are the real danger for humanity!!

It's always the same debate, it is making me sick! Go educate yourselves, open books!!

Who knows, you might find truth!! Peace

You’re so bizarre. They still sell non-halal meat.

Just don’t buy the halal one.

Plus just to inform you, halal basically means the animal was killed in a humane way. Nothing wrong with supporting that
