    Default Some U.K., Irish Subways ban ham under pressure

    coming to America next?

    Some U.K., Irish Subways ban ham under pressure

    Some 185 of the estimated 1,700 Subway stores in Great Britain and Ireland have eliminated ham and bacon from their menus in response to requests from Muslim consumers.

    The world's largest sandwich chain said in a statement that after strong interest from its Muslim customers, these locations have introduced "halal meat" as a replacement, which is prepared under strict Islamic rules.

    As Subway has spread geographically across diverse populations, back in 2007 the chain put in place a program "to ensure that the population demographic is taken into account when new story openings are considered," the company said, in a statement.

    There are currently no plans for stores serving halal meat in the U.S. market, a spokesperson says.

    Muslims are forbidden from eating any non-halal food and meat from pigs, and Subway said customers can identify those stores selling halal food by the special "All meats are Halal" sign, displayed in the participating restaurants. The signs are on menu panels, nutritional information panels and front windows of the store.

    Special meats made with non-pork products -- such as turkey ham -- are being sold instead.

    Under Islamic law, pork is forbidden and while other meat can be eaten, it must be sourced, slaughtered and processed according to very strict rules.

    I have been paying a good amount of attention to what is going on with muslims in the UK and it is down right maddening. I'm glad muslims are discriminated against in America, they have earned it by backing concepts like Sharia. Fuck them.

    Wait, did I miss something? Why are ham and bacon "eliminated" completely from UK Subway menus? Can't all those meats be under the same roof? Why can't ham and bacon continue to be an option for non-Muslims? So if a non-Muslim walked into one of those 185 Subway stores and wanted a ham and cheese sub they'd be outta luck? Ridiculous!

    Ah, fuck it. Subway sucks anyway! I'd much rather go to a local sub-shop. They're much better, bigger, fresher, and not corporate.

    Eat fresh at Subway?? Yeah right. Good luck Muslims, getting your halal meat from fuckin' Subway of all places. Do you realize what you're asking for? And from whom you are asking?
