Brazil Sadia Chicken

As Salaam mu Alikum 

Dear Brother/Sister,  Please could you comment on SANHA's opinion concerning imported meats in the Middle East Countries .... The meats are imported from Brazil like Sadia ... Their website implies "Islamic Bleeders" ...

Are these products reliable ?

We concur with SANHA's reply.

Muhtaram,      Assalāmu 'alaykum w.w.

Jazākumullāh Khairan for your query and for the opportunity to be of service to you.  We advise as follows:

·         We are not aware of the arrangements made by the Saudi authorities in terms of Halaal importation and cannot comment thereon.

·         Our visits to several Brazilian plants revealed inadequate controls, non-Muslim slaughtered products being packed as Halaal etc.

·         Most of the abattoirs in that part of the world do not slaughter all their animals Halaal. Abattoirs that facilitate Halaal slaughter only allocate a portion of the day for Halaal and the rest of the day to non-Halaal.

·         Beyond the slaughter point, there is no authorised Muslim control over the rest of the plant.

·         Accordingly, the packaging and Halaal labeling is left to the plants control and discretion.

·         SANHA therefore recommends that caution be exercised


And Allāh Ta’ālā Knows best.
