According to a report in today's Independent Muslims along with other faith communties may have been unwittingly eating adulterated chicken containing pig following an investigation by the Food Standards Agency.
London Muslim has written previously about bread containing pig enzymes.
Without wishing to sound melodramatic this issue does have all the hallmarks of a growing scandal and as a result requires action by a number of stakeholders including Government, Industry & the regulators in order to provide reassurance to the community.
Muslims not surprisingly will be feeling somewhat bewildered and confused by recent stories concerning Walker's crisps containing alcohol, bread containing pig enzymes and now chicken containing pig.
According to Masoud Khawaja, President of the Halal Food Authority http://www.halalfoodauthority.co.uk/front.html who I've just been speaking with the HFA are fully engaged in this area and have been for over 3 years. They have been lobbying here in the UK and in Europe and will continue to keep this issue on their radar for the foreseeable future.
