Asalaam alaikum,

I received this in an email and wanted to share it with you.  This information is in response to an email to Imam Dr. Yusuf Kavakci of Richardson, Texas, from Costco lamb supplier.

________
Hello,
Thank you for your inquiry.

I can confirm that all of the lamb supplied to Costco Wholesale by the
Australian Lamb Company, Inc is sourced from halal slaughtered animals. The
lambs are handled in a humane manner, are presents towards Mecca as a prayer
is recited by a Muslim slaughter man who ensures only a single cut with a
very sharp knife is needed. Subsequently, the product is certified halal.
The master cartons that Costco receives do have a Muslim Kill legend on
them. The individual packages do not carry the mark yet, but they will in
the future.

You can consume these products with confidence. Please let your friends and
family know that our lamb products meet the needs of the Muslim community.

Thank you very much for your patronage!

Marybeth Laleman
Australian Lamb Company, Inc.

That's great - we go to costco regularly.

I remember an email saying that meat at outback steak is also Halal from Australia?
Does anyone know about it ?

Asalaam alaikum,

Yes, I believe Outback Steakhouse's Lamb is Halal.  Here is a blog that posts an email from outback about it.

Asalaam alaikum,


This story gets picked up by 'The Muslim Link' paper (of VA/DC/MD).  They did a detail report on it.  The report explained that only the leg and rack of lamb is Halal in Costco. It also said that many grocery chains buy lamb from the Australian company but they cut the meat up and package it again rendering the meat NOT halal anymore because the machines that cut the meat may also handle pork.
