UK: MP speaks out about pork DNA in halal meat

Recently, pork DNA was found in Halal chicken sausages that have been served in at least one primary school in west London , this has caused MP for Bethnal Green and Bow Rushanara Ali to speak out about the issue.

The MP expressed concerns raised by her constituents after the DNA was found in halal meat.
“As pork is strictly prohibited under Islamic law and a high proportion of Tower Hamlets’ population is of Muslim faith, it is a pressing concern for my constituents,” she said.

Vigorous examination
“It is critical that halal meat contractors to schools across the UK be put through vigorous examination to ensure that they are complying with halal meat standards.”

Westminster Council has immediately removed the product from all school menus and had instructed its contractor to temporarily cease supplying meat until the issue was resolved.
