Butterball no longer halal
by Neil Munro
Butterball's Thanksgiving turkeys won't be served with a side dish of Islamic dogma this year.
The company has announced that its turkeys are not slaughtered according to Islam's halal dietary principles, which say that animals should be killed while conscious and amid the sound of Islamic prayers.
The theological turkey turnabout came after an online protest on the topic last year threatened to sour the public's taste for Butterball-branded products.
