Oh Boo Hoo ➠ Muslims Get NASTY Surprise At The Supermarket ➠ Sparks Widespread Outrage
Muslims in Europe are feeling demoralized after a simple error caused an issue among Islamic consumers, who thought they were eating a product that didn’t contain pork, when in fact it was anything but halal-certified.
Britain has had an influx of Muslims, which at this point can only be described as an infiltration of Islam on Western culture in the region. As such, their main chain of supermarket stores, Aldi, has had to stock their shelves with food that is acceptable to Muslims, based on their restrictive belief system.
In no way, shape, or form is a devout Muslim allowed to consume pork products, but that is exactly what they got without knowing it, when delving into the black pudding product sold at the grocery store chain. As if the pudding wasn’t disgusting enough in itself, the Scottish makers of this evidently popular item, Punjab Pakora, had pork blood, pork stock, and pork skins in their dish, but they “accidentally” sold it as halal. Oops!
Muslim consumers of this food item were irate when they found out they had been deceived, since the pig remnants weren’t advertised on the list of ingredients. But Kushal and Vinita Duggal, who own Punjab Pakora, said it wasn’t intentional, claiming it was an error in the label printing.
“The mistake happened when we did the print run and unfortunately our manager failed to spot this error and got approval for printing,” the owners said after the issue outraged Muslims in the U.K. “We have been trying our very best and hardest (to correct the issue) and have contacted different clients involved and have sorted the issue.”
The pudding company, as well as the supermarket with locations around the globe, have now been forced into an apology by whining Muslims who feel violated.
“Regarding the Punjab Pakora Black Pudding Pakora (Supplied by Punjab Pakora), we have now investigated this matter with the supplier, who has advised that the packaging was incorrectly labeled as Halal-certified and the problem is currently being rectified,” a spokesperson for Aldi said in a statement. “We apologize for any confusion caused by this unfortunate, isolated matter. While this is not a food safety or legal compliance issue, any customers who are not satisfied are welcome to return their purchase to store for a full refund.”
But the apology apparently wasn’t enough for some Muslims who bought the food item, trusting in the label that it fit within their Islamic dietary restrictions. One man in particular is pretty heated on the issue, or at least using it as a soapbox to spread his way of life. More
