    The only reason someone wouldn't want that label is if they thought it would reduce their sales. If truth reduces their sales then that says a lot about them.

    To be fair though, all 'unstunned' meat should be labelled as such.

    ITT this is all just a little bit silly.

    I eat halal. It's cleaner, imo but they have every right to label as some people feel strongly about this.

    Ive never seen an article that says that halal/kosher causes more harm than stunning apart from meat companies and the RSPCA. Killing animals is undoubtedly going to cause pain,regardless of the method which can explain the RSPCA's bias.

    Non halal meat is cheaper,meaning bigger profits for meat companies; again,another bias.

    Its been proposed that if stunning is proved to cause less harm to animals (from a neutral source) then it would be halal to stun the animal,and then slit its head

    So, are you saying the RSPCA is bias as Hala/Kosher causes more pain?

    Edit; Negged for asking for clarification? Oh TSR....

    Am I the only one who thinks killing is killing?

    I understand the reason why Muslims/Jews have halal/kosher meat and I respect those views. However, you're still breeding an animal to be killed so why does the label matter so much? :curious:

    I didnt say that. If the RSPCA had their way,all meat would be banned. Why not start with what the public is scared/ignorant of?

    Why are they complaining? It makes it easier for them to find religiously prepared meat and avoid that which isn't. They won't have to go to niche food stores to find it.

    Are they just upset at that people want to know what's on their dinner plate? Or perhaps that ordinary Britons would prefer to eat meat free from religious preparation.
