  • i just got this news from my brother that share me the link from saudigazette.com.sa. i tried to link or share the news directly from their website but unfortunately i can not found any link to share except FB, google and twitter on their website. then i just copy the news only from their website. hope useful US halal food supplier misled Muslims Last updated: Tuesday, December 16, 2014 11:03 PM CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — A food supplier for several years falsely marketed beef to Muslims around the world as meeting strict halal standards, exporting products that weren’t slaughtered in accordance with Islamic law, federal prosecutors allege in a major fraud indictment. Midamar Corp., based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, sold at least $4.9 million in beef to customers in Malaysia, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates and elsewhere that did not follow the halal practices promised in its labeling and advertising, according to the indictment returned on Dec. 5 by a grand jury. Midamar and its directors, brothers Jalel and William “Yahya” Aossey, are charged with conspiring to make and use false statements and documents, sell misbranded meat and commit mail and wire fraud. Also indicted is another company the brothers controlled, Islamic Services of America, which is one of the few organizations approved by Malaysia, Indonesia, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and UAE to certify beef for import into their countries. The defendants are charged with 91 other counts of making false statements on export certificates, wire fraud and money laundering. Midamar’s founder, 73-year-old William Aossey Jr., pleaded not guilty to similar charges last week. Midamar issued a statement calling the charges a violation of the US constitution’s separation of church and state, saying it was inappropriate for the government to judge halal practices. The company said its slaughter methods have been vetted by halal auditors during its 40-year history and the “company continues to maintain its high level of halal integrity.” “The allegations of halal fraud are due to a ‘one size fits all’ approach taken by the government authorities,” the statement said. Islamic Services of America said on Monday that it won’t allow “allegations, implications or inferences of any improprieties to affect its level of quality and service.” After the orders arrived at Midamar in Cedar Rapids, employees removed federally-required labels showing the beef came from that plant with acetone or nail polish remover, the indictment says. Employees allegedly then put on fraudulent labels indicating the meat came from an Omaha plant that was certified to export to Malaysia and Indonesia. Midamar allegedly included the false representations about the source on export forms and certificates that were presented to and approved by the USDA. Syed Rasheeduddin Ahmed, president of the Muslim Consumer Group for Food Products, said many Muslims are already suspicious about meat products that claim to meet halal standards. “This indictment will add to their suspicion,” he said. “Where can we buy? Which one is halal?” The indictment alleges Midamar, a pioneer in halal food in the United States, and Islamic Services of America repeatedly gave the false impression that beef products complied with import and United States Department of Agriculture requirements. The company said the case stems from a regulatory action brought in 2010 by USDA inspectors that it thought had been resolved. Midamar and Islamic Services of America told customers all of its cattle were slaughtered by hand by specially-trained Muslim slaughtermen who always recited prayer. Midamar also said it did not use penetrative captive bolt stunning, a process commonly used in meatpacking in which an animal is killed when a steel rod is shot into its brain. In reality, Midamar’s primary beef supplier from 2007 to 2010 was a Windom, Minnesota, meatpacking plant that used bolt stunning to ensure all cattle slaughtered “were rendered senseless and were dead,” the indictment alleges. The plant, which wasn’t certified for export to Indonesia and Malaysia, often did not have Muslim slaughtermen present and did not pray or recite the “Tasmia” prayer, the indictment says. — AP - suripta
  • AOA

    I will not comment on it because the case is still in the courts. A Associated Press Reporter from Iowa called me last week and ask about them. I told him I have no knowledge about Midamar Halal practices. I told him that many Muslims consumers in USA do not trust Halal meat suppliers so this indictment will add to their suspicion. MCG is not involve in Halal meat certification.

    So Associated Reporter from Iowa reported what I told him. I got nothing do with Midamar.

  • AOA

    Gelatin in any food product or ingredient or Vitamins or medicine is not Halal unless it says Fish Gelatin under ingredients statement in USA and Canada

    MCG is receiving many inquiries about gelatin foods or ingredients or in vitamins whether it is Halal or not.

    The important point is none of the gelatin carrying food products or ingredients or vitamins are Halal unless it says fish gelatin under ingredients statement. The use of fish gelatin in foods in USA is on rise because of demand by Muslim consumers and Jewish consumers. Food companies have booths at IFT Food Expo in July 2013 in Chicago promoting use of fish gelatin. It is important to know the fish gelatin from cat fish is not consider Halal or Kosher. Beta Carotene suppliers use fish gelatin as  a processing aid ingredient or hidden ingredient in Beta Carotene powder form so that it mixes well with other ingredients and fish gelatin is not mentioned under ingredients list.

  • Assalamualaikum wr wb, First of all, I am really pleased with the useful information regarding halal topic in this site. My intention is to ask you the status of "Crumpy Choco/Nut/Duo Spread" which is produced and manufactured by "Natra Allcrump". Allcrump was a Belgium food company which is now has been aquired by Natra, a Spain food company. Crumpy products does not contain halal logo in their jars, and listed lecithin (not soy lecithin) as emulsifier. However, I am still curious if they are still permitable to be consumed by muslims. Finally, I hope that you can confirm whether Crumpy products are halal or not. Thank you very much for your attention, Wassalam. Bima Pranachitra Medan, Indonesia - Bima Pranachitra

  • Do you have any idea about Pantai Norasingh Teriyaki sauce? Is it halal? In their facebook site they have a halal picture, but on the product, it doesnt write halal... Please help me - SEFA KIZILASLAN
  • AOA

    Any Teriyaki sauce is not a Halal sauce if it is made with Haram Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce which a fermented soy sauce containing 2-3% alcohol.

    From our Faq:

    What are the ingredients of Haram Soy Sauce:

    The Naturally Brewed Soy is the Haram soy sauce. It is made just like wine containing 2-3% alcohol. The ingredients list contains Wheat, Soy and other ingredients. Food companies do not mention Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce under the ingredients statement. They just mention soy sauce but within parenthesis they write Wheat and Soy. This is the only way to find a Haram Soy Sauce.

    What are the ingredients of Halal Soy Sauce:

    All purpose soy sauce or non naturally brewed soy sauce is a Halal soy sauce made from water, salt, hydrolyzed soy protein, corn syrup and sodium benzoate. La Choy All Purpose Soy sauce is a Halal Soy Sauce

  • AOA

    Carrageenan

    Carrageenan is a mushbooh gum obtained from seaweeds but during its production it is crystallized either by Ethyl Alcohol or Isopropyl Alcohol or Potassium Chloride (KCl) or none of all. If Potassium Chloride (KCL) or none of any thing was used during the processing of Carrageenan then it will be Halal. But if Ethyl Alcohol or Isopropyl Alcohol was use to crystallized the Carrageenan then this Carrageenan will become NOT HALAL ingredient. Only the manufacturer of Carrageenan know what they use to crystallized Carrageenan during its processing.

    So ask manufacturer of food product who used Carrageenan to find out from their Carrageenan supplier whether Ethyl Alcohol or Isoprpyl Alcohol was used during the processing of Carrageenan.

  • Assalamualaikum Br., I read your alerts section today and went to the website which you had mentioned. It says that " Tabasco buys the barrels exclusively from Jack Daniels, grind the charred interiors off of them and uses them to store fresh batches of sauce.", but it grinds its interiors before using the barrels, So why is it haram? Can you explain? Jazakallah khair! - TA
  • AOA

    A muslim consumer is provided this information since I am sick now days with carrying wound vac all the time. I should not have put that alert, then I talk to the company and here is the result:

    MCG investigated the Tabasco brand sauce processing method with  Mc Ilhenny company. The company told MCG that there is no cross contamination of their sauces with oak barrel previously used for whisky production and there is no alcohol production during three years of aging of Tabasco brand Sauces.

    The aging of Tabasco barnd Sauce is similar to production of pickles, Achar (Indian or Pakistani pickles)  and Sauerkraut where there is no alcohol produced.

    Here is how Mc Ilhenny company treat the oak barrel used for aging of their sauces from Wikipedia:

    Peppers are ground into a mash on the day of harvest and placed along with salt in white oak barrels (aging barrels) previously used for Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whisky.

    To prepare the barrel, the inside of the barrel is de-charred (top layer of wood is removed), torched and cleaned, to minimize the presence of any residual whiskey. The barrels are then used in warehouses on Avery Island for aging the mash.

    After aging for up to three years, the mash is strained to remove skins and seeds. The resulting liquid is mixed with vinegar, stirred occasionally for a month, and then bottled as finished sauce.

    Tabasco brand Sauces are Halal certified by Malaysia Government's JAKIM a Halal certifying organization after thorough inspection of their plants and process according to the Company.

    MCG consider Tabasco Sauces are Halal

    Your Imam is right. Kosher meat is not Halal. Please provide this informations to other.

    Sachet a Rabbi whose only job to slaughet kosher animals. But he do not pronounce the name of Allah on each animals. He mentioned Allah's name when slaughtering the first animal and last one, nothing in between.

    So kosher meat is not consider the meat slaughtered by people of book. Allah's name is announced on each animal when a Muslim slaughter lot of animals.

    In Islam any able body with sound mind Muslim can slaughter the animal but in Kosher meat only Sachet a Rabbi slaughter the animal nobody else.
