  1. Open nature products are not halal! I personally called safeways corporate office and was told if they went through the trouble to sell halal meat if WILL be marked as such.

  2. I checked a Safeway in Maryland. The lamb packs that were packed in Australia are marked halal with the Australia Halal mark (i..e, rack of lamb and leg). I think the rest of the Open Nature lamb would also come from the same Aussie supplier, but once they open a pack and cut the pieces it can no longer be certified Halal because the Safeway store butcher room is not a Halal certified facility. Although all the Open Nature lamb and beef I saw at the store I checked was from Australia.

    I could not find any beef with original Australian packaging to check whether it is Halal certified. Although again, unless Safeway butcher room keeps separate equipment for cutting and packaging the Australian beef, they will not be able to mark the store made packaging to be Halal.

  3. Google information on the current practices in halal slaughter houses. They totally contradict the meaning of “halal”. To truly be halal, the animal must not be frightened. It should not see the knife, or see other animals being slaughtered. The knife must be razor sharp and the cut must be swift, deep and clean, so that the animal dies immediately. Animals killed in most halal slaughter houses today are abused, terrified and suffer a great deal. Today, the only way to actually eat HALAL meat is to kill it yourself. If you can’t do that, then buying any meat from any store is all the same, whether it’s labeled as halal or not. Wake up people!
