KFC muslim experiment in UK – FAIL?

KFC is the second biggest fast food chain in Britain. In an effort to get some market share in the country’s growing muslim population, KFC announced the opening of 86 (I hate to call them) restaurants serving  halal-only meat. It looks like this PC effort might actually turn out to be a double FAIL. (story here from NOTW.com)

Britain’s second biggest fast food chain hoped to woo the Islamic market by opening 86 trial outlets selling halal-only meat – that’s from animals slaughtered under strict religious guidelines.

But KFC’s target diners insist the chickens are not being killed in the right way and say they will stay away.

And furious non-Muslim customers have set up Facebook groups protesting that the trial branches, which also ban pork, have dropped their favourite bacon-topped Big Daddy burger from menus.

Groups with names such as “Against the KFC Halal Trial” and “No Halal at Colne KFC” – referring to a branch in the Lancs town – are rapidly attracting members. For meat to be halal, the animal must be alive when its throat is cut as a verse from the Koran is recited.

LOL – PETA unavailable for comment…
