Meat not up to Islamic Law, market pays $527,000
An Anaheim market has agreed to pay more than a half-million dollars in a civil settlement after claims that it falsely advertised and sold generic meat that it advertised as halal meat.
Calling meat "halal" indicates that it was butchered in a specific way and slaughtered in the name of Allah, making it permissible to eat in accordance with Islamic law.
An investigation by the Orange County District Attorney's office found that Anaheim Super King Market was selling meat from various sources as Halal meat, even though it did not meet those standards.
