I'm pretty sure it's halal.
They have no reason to lie about it esp. cos it's only gonna be available in a few franches and probably more asian populated areas like bradford, some in manch/bham, somee london areas etc.
Most people I know who are muslim don't really care about whether HMC has declared it or not, they will eat it as long as they know it is halal. They do not bother researching it and what not to make sure it is really Halal and im pretty sure most British Asians do this too.
This is just a judgement from my local area though. Cos a huge majority is halal anyway cos they would lose business if it weren't.

Well, there are a few Halal KFCs in the US as well, I think, and I think there is no reason why they would lie.

As said above, their company's reputation is at stake and it would go down the drain if they are caught.  Why would such a big corporation take such a huge risk? They would be at risk of getting sued if they are caught and maybe at the verge of closure.

I don't think they would lie about it.  And people have better things to do than lie about this small thing.  I think people sometimes are overly judgmental and they have to doubt everything.  If you don't believe it, then fine don't go and eat food from Halal KFC but if others believe them, then it's fine for them. I  think it's the matter of personal opinion.

Personally, I think the little more sales they will have due to Halal food would not be worth the risk of lying about it.  I am sure the head of KFC would know that, and it's not like Halal food is more expensive than regular meat.

Great topic btw!

OMG...I saw that's strange because alot of people eat at Nando's if they think it's halal even without checking the certificate to confirm it. Why the uproar against these McD's and KFC?

Everyone's pretty much said what I thought too...but areas densely populated by the asian should pretty much be a hit. I always have friends craving for KFC after they return from Pakistan or The UAE...LOL

I think its a cool idea.   Its not unlike Kosher food really.  They are trying to reach a new segment of the population and if you dont like it, well dont eat it.

There is no harm in the food being halal. Halal just means to recite bismillah before slaughtering the chicken and the animal's throat has to be cut by a knife very gently at a certain place as it would cause minimum pain to the animal. There are a few animals which are not permitted, they are also not halal.

I hope i clarified what halal actually is and now if u read the table again u will understand why ppl are against KFCs being certified by HFA.
