In the wake of a lawsuit settlement, the only two McDonald's restaurants in the country that served halal chicken have stopped serving halal McChicken sandwiches and Chicken McNuggets.
The outlets are at 13158 Ford Road and 14860 Michigan Ave. A sign on the door at the Michigan Avenue restaurant tells customers in English and Arabic that the halal chicken is no longer served there. The electronic sign at the Ford Road restaurant was advertising a "buy one, get one free" special on Filet-O-Fish sandwiches Friday morning.
"Halal" refers to meeting Islamic requirements for preparing food. God's name must be invoked before an animal providing meat for consumption is slaughtered.
