Almost all of us certainly have tasted the menu served by one of the most popular fast food chains, KFC (Kentucky Fried Chicken).
But are KFC’s menu items halal for their Muslim customers?
Is KFC Halal or Haram?
KFC is Partially Halal.
KFC is fully halal in various Muslim countries such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, UAE, Indonesia and others. But unfortunately, KFC is not completely halal in Western countries such as the United States, Canada and the UK. Data shows that out of 900 KFC restaurant branches in the UK, only 130 of them are 100% halal certified.
- This is confirmed by KFC’s official website.
Is It Safe For Muslims To Eat?
It is safe to consume KFC menus in Muslim countries considering that KFC is completely halal in these countries. However, it is different in Western countries, the only halal KFC menu that is safe for Muslim customers is their fried chicken – the pieces or the buckets.
Muslim customers in western countries are advised to verify the halal status of the menu with the restaurant directly to be safe.
