The Al-Safa company recently changed its slaughter process for Halal chickens. At this time, all Al-Safa chicken products are being machine-slaughtered and are no longer hand-slaughtered in accordance to Halal criteria. When it comes to corporate responsibility and ethics, the company did not make a public announcement regarding this important update. It is possible that many Muslims assume that Al-Safa products are still hand-slaughtered as previously claimed. Transparency and honesty is the best policy, and a company should always try to do the right thing.

I am a customer of Al-Safa products and am not happy about this development. I expect Al-Safa to show more transparency and honesty regarding their halal processes in the future with the public. I support Halal which is hand-slaughtered by a Muslim and would choose hand-slaughter when given a choice between this Sunnah method versus the very controversial machine-slaughter method. I would be willing to consume Al-Safa products in the future if they would be hand-slaughtered by a Muslim. The consumption of Halal food products is an important issue for me and I support the efforts of those who strive towards Halal integrity in America.
