KFC leaves Muslims baffled after branch drops alcohol hand-wipes in halal mix-up
Muslim leaders have voiced bewilderment after a branch of Kentucky Fried Chicken refused to give customers hand-wipes containing alcohol for fear that doing so would cause offence.
The fast food chain blamed a "misunderstanding" at the branch in Leicester, which is part of a trial involving halal chicken, after staff were told not to hand out the wipes in case they were against Islamic law.
Muslim leaders described the move as "bizarre" and warned that even well-meaning decisions could be potentially harmful by creating the impression that the community was making "ridiculous" demands.
