Muslims in Germany are currently outraged after the supermarket chain Aldi sold them snacks that secretly contained pork.
“This is absolutely outrageous, and I am deeply offended by this!” Muslim shopper Manahil Khan exclaimed to reporters. “I am pretty sure many others of the Muslim community are also very offended by this.”
According to Conservative Tribune, the snacks were produced by company Punjab Pakora, which packaged the snacks as “Halal” and “safe for Muslim consumption.” However, inspection of the ingredients list on the back of the package reveals the snacks contain both “pork blood” and “pork skins.”
“The mistake happened when we did the print run, and unfortunately, our manager failed to spot this error and got approval for printing,” a Punjabi Pakora spokesman explained.
Though this is in now way their fault, Aldi has graciously offered to offer full refunds to Muslims who bought the £1.49 (about $2.31) snacks. Sadly, this has not stopped Muslims from continue to whine about the store, saying their people do “not deserve to be misled by any sort of false claim of halal food or lies about what we consume.”
These Muslims need to redirect their outrage against the company that was really at fault here. Drop your pitchforks, Muslims, there’s nothing to see here!
