Costco now selling halal

  Costco is now selling HALAL organic chicken!

Not is it only halal, but according to Coleman’s site, their chicken is certified organic, no antibiotics, no hormones, no preservatives, and always vegetarian fed! I’m sure it’ll appeal to a wide variety of people (not just Muslims).

Is this their first organic product or something? Is it supposed to matter that it's Muslim?

I'm sure it will be of interest to Muslims and other people on a restricted diet or those who simply want to buy chicken that meet certain standards (like no antibiotics, for example).

My question is:  does the "vegetarian only" diet consist mainly of corn?

That's cool. Halal can be eaten by Jews too, right? I would buy it too, even though I am not a Muslim, simply because it is organic.

 It matters to Muslims because it is not just organic but it is halal which means permitted. A Muslim must eat halal meat that is raised and slaughtered according to what is prescribed in Islam.

Cool!  We luckily live near a lot of Halal butchers, but our Restaurant Depot (we have a membership for our business) also has a good selection of Halal meat, a good price but you have to get a lot!  We sell Halal meat at our deli as well, so I usually just take some from there.  I don't go to Costco, though.

Awesome!  They've been carrying quite a few kosher products for a long time.  Since it's almost impossible to find glatt kosher meat outside of select markets, I tend to consider halal meats a reasonable substitute.  I've see the organic chicken there but didn't realize it's also halal.
