M&S Halal

M&S Halal

Dear Sir or Madam

I very much welcome the active stance that M&S has towards animal welfare.

I have looked at the website of the Farm Animal Welfare Council (www.fawc.org.uk), and have read their document 'Report on the Welfare of Farmed Animals at Slaughter or Killing'

Regarding Halal slaughter:

"195. When a very large transverse incision is made across the neck a number of vital tissues are transected including: skin, muscle, trachea, oesophagus, carotid arteries, jugular veins, major nerve trunks (e.g. vagus and phrenic nerves) plus numerous minor nerves. Such a drastic cut will inevitably trigger a barrage of sensory information to the brain in a sensible (conscious) animal. We are persuaded that such a massive injury would result in very significant pain and distress in the period before insensibility supervenes."

Can you reassure me that M&S do not sell any Halal meat, or Halal meat products?

Do you also check whether pet food contains Halal meat?

With kind regards


Humanity needs peace not Islam.
