Islamic UK Prisoners forced to eat pork

Hot on the heels of finding horse meat in supermarket burgers, and the recent admission by Burger King that their burgers contained horse meat also comes the revelation that UK prison meat has been found to contain pork DNA:  

The Ministry of Justice is to suspend a firm supplying meat to prisons after tests found that it may have provided pies and pasties described as halal – but with traces of pork DNA.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said the local authority involved was investigating, while the MoJ said the products have been withdrawn.

Justice minister Jeremy Wright said the incident was “absolutely unacceptable”.

Under Islamic law, Muslims are strictly forbidden to eat pork.

In a country where Mad Cow Disease just about destroyed a large portion of their farming sector, it astounds me to find they have such poor control over their processed meat products.

In a statement, Mr Wright said the Prison Service was investigating the incident “as a matter of urgency”.

“This is an absolutely unacceptable situation and one which we regret greatly.

“Clearly this must be distressing for those affected and they can be reassured we are doing everything we can to resolve the situation.”

Steve Wearne, an FSA director, said it had called an urgent meeting “of a range of suppliers” on Monday where it would “stress again the responsibility of all food businesses to ensure the food that they sell contains what it says on the label”.

Under Islamic law, the eating of pork is strictly prohibited for Muslims, as is the consumption of meat which has not been slaughtered in the correct way.

Halal meat is defined as meat slaughtered by hand and blessed by the person doing the killing, however some Muslims believe a mechanised form is also now acceptable.

Earlier Food and farming minister David Heath said people “have a right to expect that the food they are eating is correctly described” and that he wanted a meeting with retailers and suppliers next week to “get to the bottom of this completely unacceptable situation.”

Editor of the Muslim News, Ahmed Versi, said: “This is very serious because no Muslim would ever eat pork meat – anything to do with pork – and it must be very distressing for those in prison who have been given this meat to realise they may have been eating food which was contaminated with pig.”

    Cue muslim outrage. Presumably the crime that got them in prison was also against their religion.

    • Honcho

      Agreed, behave yourself or go home. Thats all that can be asked, I have no problems with any religion, only when they cause trouble.

    • Rodger T

      They can`t commit crimes against the infidel .

      Thats the thing with islam,everything is forbidden yet everything is allowed.

      • Patrick

        You should see the things the men get up to during their summer stays in London, the whores, the drugs, the drinking.

    • Patrick

      Only if it was against another Muslim – if they committed crimes against the “infidels” then that is ok.

  • “This is very serious because no Muslim would ever eat pork meat –
    anything to do with pork – and it must be very distressing for those in
    prison who have been given this meat to realise they may have been
    eating food which was contaminated with pig.”

    – Probably not as distressed as the victims of their crimes probably feel…

  • cows4me

    Do hope they had Mohammad place mats and their left hands were tied behind their backs.

  • Greg

    Do I care.

    • Travis Poulson

      Apparently you clicked the post to read it.

      • Cadwallader

        They do look damn tasty though.

        • Travis Poulson

          One is burnt on top, this is unacceptable treatment of a pie. But getting back to the post, the fact they’ve been eating pork just goes to show that their belief is a load of shit, as eating pork makes no difference. You can bet your bottom dollar that it wouldn’t have ever been an issue had they not known about it.

          • Mr Sackunkrak

            Too bloody right, it all comes out the same way. But otherwise I couldn’t give a flying fuck. Don’t like pork pies? Dust is nutritious if they want an alternative.

  • Gazzaw

    Presumably British-born Jewish prisoners have been putting up with this for years so why the sudden outrage?

    • StupidDisqus

      There are approximately zero Jewish prisoners in the UK – British born or not.

      • Gazzaw

        Actually about 260 Jewish prisoners as of May 2012 (Source: Prison Population Statistics by Gavin Berman/ House of Commons Library).

        Not a huge amount but a long way more than ‘approximately’ zero & enough to make themselves heard if there was a significant problem.

  • Lily

    Either it’s true, and who gives a f#k! Or the media’s having a slow week and decided to air some trivia.

  • Dani

    so what if it was halal bacon? Still bad?

    • Gazzaw

      Bacon? Why should any prisoner get fucking bacon?

  • Rodger T

    Hands up,all those that give a shit.

  • thor42

    Good bloody job!

    Fuck them. They’re in the West, they eat what they’re given or starve – preferably the latter.

    Even better – deport them to an Islamic hellhole.

  • williamabong

    Fuck em, if they don’t like the tucker either bring their own or don’t break the law so they don’t get bed and lodgings.
    Better still don’t tell them and feed them up on pork full-time, then tattoo “i ate pig meat, and loved it” across their faces and send them home, that should give the towel heads something to really bitch about.

  • Dion

    This is an outrage – but only because pork is an expensive meat now days.

  • starboard

    “Clearly this must be distressing for those affected and they can be reassured we are doing everything we can to resolve the situation.”

    They’re prisoners FFS !! Who cares if its fucking distressing.

  • backster

    Meat is not essential to the Human diet so the most efficient solution is to put the muslims on a vegetarian diet.

    • Mr_Blobby

      Put all prisoners on a stewed vege only diet, with a potato for special occasions like Christmas.

      • Gazzaw

        Cut them a bit of slack Mr B. How about a spud on their birthday as well?

    • In Vino Veritas

      Meat is absolutely essential to the human diet. The human brain would not have developed as it has without it.

  • blazer

    Goodbye Pork Pie.

  • GregM

    My biggest issue is who is the retard that burnt the pies.

  • So people are complaining that prisoners are eating meat that was humanely killed? Tough: if you won’t eat the swine, don’t do the crime.

  • StupidDisqus

    So not content with all their food, board, heating, plumbing, education, lawyers, appeals, judges, police, courts and of course prisons paid for by the taxpayer they’re no complaining about the quality of the food.

    Another problem solved by Cops with Glocks™.

  • Mr_Blobby

    Under islamic law. Who gives a shit. Try this on under our countries law, if you break the law you go to prison. If you go to Prison you eat what we choose to give you or go hungry. Don’t like it don’t break the law.

  • Red

    If this says one thing to me? In NZ we are paying way too much for our pork

  • thehawkreturns

    I hope it was Kiwi pork shoved down their throats.
