Fast food giant Subway has removed ham and bacon from almost 200 outlets, and switched to halal meat alternatives in an attempt to please its Muslim customers.

185 out of 1500 stores isn't many and all because they want to sell more subway sandwiches in Islam communities. Why the fuss?? Oh wait it's in the daily mail. That is more of an atrocity than subway wanting to sell sandwiches.

What happened to them pleasing there none Muslim customers.

If subway want to please the Muslims then they should offer halal meat as a choice, not totally remove pork from menu. So they want to annoy ham lovers, or force them to go else where.

i have a feeling they will regret it.

What's next, are they going to remove the veg options to please meat lovers or vice versa.

An American fast food chain, that has different menus for different regions. Jews don't eat 'piggies' either and I dare say it is Jewish owned/franchised.
If they intend to go down that route for religious reason, then they should also observe religious customs like Jewish and Muslim Sabbath days and close on days of importance to various faiths. That would mean closing Friday, Saturday and Sunday(for any Christians that maybe lurking under a bush somewhere.
Never heard such a load of rubbish. Mind you, it could be a healthy option for us. Red meat and fatty meat(e.g. pig)are advised against by the medical profession in this country as a preventative step against bowel cancer.

mountain out of a molehill this thread really

if your local chippy didn't do battered twix bars and a load of residents wanted battered twix bars and suggested it enough the chippy would do battered twix bars rather than lose out on customers, same theory here. enough people wanted halal meat for the franchise to have it on the menu. it doesn't affect any of us here does it? i know most kebab shops are halal and we still eat in them, i don't see what the fuss is about, if you went in there for a bacon and sausage sandwich they'd show you the door, you're the minority. they are catering (literally) for the majority of the customers in the area of the shop. they just want to sell more sandwiches and make a bit more money, i really don't see what the whole furore is about as in the comments above.

Tatey are you going to boycott subway because of this? if so that's ridiculously petty of you.

Willo i agree with halal being an option but not get rid of pork etc but it's how they want it to be, they may regret it but i think these will be franchises and not 100% subway.

that's all i really have to say about this.

i for one will continue to visit (and thoroughly enjoy) subway as a fast-food option.

I'm not bothered who sells what or where, I am concerned however that an animal can have its throat slit without being stunned first. In this green and pleasant land, if you kick a dogs arse, you face possible prosecution and rightly so. It probably comes under a cruelty law, no where near as cruel as slitting an animals throat, I wouldn't think. My view is Subway are supporting animal cruelty.

I am with Bert on this one, religion in one guise or another making rules, dividing and causing unrest, but worst of all slitting an animals throat without stunning and letting it bleed out.

Heard about this 'report' on Facebook yesterday.

Amazes me that people believe the 'article' to be true, rant and rave accordingly.....without researching themselves.

As of yesterday, Subway continues to serve Ham, Pork, Bacon in its butties..... within Wallasey stores anyhow.

Utter BULLSHIT from the Daily Mail as per usual.

Oh, they still sell pork and ham in Wallasey store, so the Daily Mail got it wrong... YOU got it wrong, every time the Daily Mail is mentioned you get out of your box, and as usual get it wrong. Give it a rest.

I have not 'got it wrong' with regards to this 'article. Inbox me if you want to furthur this discussion (no audiences there) As for 'give it a rest'- NO! My view is as valid as is everybody elses- you thinking that I am wrong (your problem,not mine) I wouldn't wipe my arse on the Daily Mail but other people like to read it....

If a certain section of the community wants to eat meat killed the Hala way,I would like to eat meat in which the way an animal is killed,by stunning it first. Am I getting a choice,or is it all Hala killed?
