    Australian Halal Meat Study (for the complete study please email me)

    The Halal advocates have contacted Costco and verified that they use

    seven plants in Australia for the supply of their Kirkland Signature

    Australian Lamb. Two Muslim scholars (Mufti Abdullah Nana[Bay Area] and Mufti Ikram Haq[Rhode Island]) visited four of the seven plants personally and approved of the slaughter process. These four plants are listed below in the approved list. They spoke to the halal

    supervisors at two other plants which they were not able to visit and

    they interviewed these Muslims regarding the slaughter process. The

    halal advocates contacted the Muslim inspector for the Halal

    certifying body at the seventh plant and also interviewed him in

    detail regarding the slaughter process. These two halal advocates

    have independently confirmed the halal status of all seven suppliers

    of the Kirkland Signature Australian lamb and are satisfied that this

    meat is slaughtered in accordance to the Islamic requirements. Costco

    also sells Australian lamb which is repackaged and placed in trays

    which do not carry a halal label. A Muslim should look for the

    Australia Halal label and the Kirkland Signature brand label on the

    product. Sample pictures of the Kirkland Signature packages are given

    below.

    Similarly, the two scholars also were able to verify the halal status

    of the Opal Valley Australian Lamb sold in many stores in the Midwest

    and East Coast. This lamb is sold in individually wrapped Opal Valley

    packages and large 40 pound Opal Valley boxes. The

    individually-wrapped Opal Valley meat products also bear a Australian

    Halal logo. The halal advocates visited all four plants which supply

    Opal Valley Lamb products to the United States and approved of the

    halal slaughter method. These four plants only do halal meat

    production and nothing else. One can be confident that the Opal

    Valley Lamb meets the Islamic requirements. Sample packages of Opal

    Valley are attached below.

    Another popular brand sold in Safeway and Von’s in the West Coast is

    Diamond Valley. This brand is supplied by three plants; two in

    Australia and one in New Zealand. The Halal advocates visited both

    the plants in Australia which supply Diamond Valley and approved of

    their halal slaughter process. They have not yet been able to visit

    the plant in New Zealand. The Diamond Valley Lamb package does have a

    label which states if the lamb is a product of Australia or New

    Zealand. The halal advocates will inform the Muslim community of any

    updates with regards to the New Zealand supplier of Diamond Valley.

    Sample packages of the Diamond Valley product are attached below.

    Muslim consumers in America should ask their local supermarkets or

    retail stores who sell Australian meat to provide current Halal

    certificates for each meat shipment they receive and to place these

    certificates for display. This will assist the Halal Organizations in

    Australia as well as the Australian Muslim community.

    Here is a current list of approved slaughterhouses from Australia.
