A Michigan man was awarded $700,000 because his local McDonald’s made him food that was not prepared in the Muslim tradition. Seriously, $700,000. Allah snack bar!
A judge has approved a long-awaited $700,000 settlement between a Dearborn McDonalds and people who say they ate chicken sandwiches, that should have been prepared as HALAL: the Muslim equivalent of Kosher.
Ahmed Ahmed, the Dearborn Heights man who represents plaintiffs in the class-action suit, claims he bought a chicken sandwich in September 2011 at the restaurant but found it wasn’t prepared according to Islamic law.
Ahmed Ahmed; the man so nice they named him twice. As a result of the suit, McDonald’s plans to roll our a McFrivolous Shake.
