McDonald’s pays $700k to US Muslims for false halal food

McDonald’s has paid $700,000 to members of a U.S. Muslim community in Michigan after one of its franchise restaurants falsely advertised its food as prepared in accordance with Islamic law, or halal, a media report said.  »

Michigan: A judge has finalized a $700,000 settlement between McDonald’s and members of Michigan’s Muslim community over claims a Detroit-area restaurant falsely advertised food as prepared according to Islamic law.

Wayne County Circuit Judge Kathleen Macdonald gave the OK at a hearing Wednesday.

 

She’s overseen the case and refereed objections from outside groups since a preliminary deal was announced in January.

 

Ahmed Ahmed, the Dearborn Heights man who represents plaintiffs in the class-action, claims he bought a chicken sandwich in September 2011 at a Dearborn McDonald’s but found it wasn’t halal.

 

The settlement calls for distributing the money to Ahmed, a Detroit health clinic, Dearborn’s Arab American National Museum and Ahmed’s lawyers.

Dearborn attorney Majed Moughni is among the objectors. He said the settlement doesn’t help those most affected.

 

He argued that the clinic is several miles (kilometers) away from the restaurant and the museum has nothing to do with halal food.

 

There are only two McDonald’s in the United States that sell halal products and both are in Dearborn, which has one of the largest U.S. Arab and Muslim communities.

 

Overall, the Detroit area is home to about 150,000 Muslims of many ethnicity.
