(NEWS) Slaughterhouse Stops Kosher Slaughter Over McDonald’s Protest

"A slaughterhouse that supplies kosher meat to London-area stores has stopped kosher slaughter following a protest by McDonald's.

Slaney Foods in County Wexford, Ireland, decided to stop religious slaughter, the Jewish Chronicle reported. Slaney has supplied meat to McDonald's for eight years.

McDonald's has been under fire in recent days since media reports that halal meat, which is ritually slaughtered for Muslims, is used by some of the fast-food chain's restaurants. After denying that such meat was used because it is against company policy, McDonald's was forced to admit that some of its meat indeed was ritually slaughtered at Slaney."
