Muslims At Butterball Ensure All Meat Is Killed Under Strict Islamic Law

In a recent article in the American Thinker by Pamela Geller we discover that much of the meat we eat is raised and killed and packaged for our consumption, and certified as being Halal (Denoting or relating to meat prepared as prescribed by Muslim law).
