Now, thanks to the miracle of modern technology, halal meat can be detected — if you live in France, that is.

France: An App for Halal Meat
Our neighbors across the Rhine are known for finding practical solutions to life’s problems. As PI reported, the country was horrified to realize how high the percentage of halal-butchered meat has become. Until now, the layperson could not identify that kind of meat at the supermarket counter. That is history. There is now a free app with which it is possible, using the slaughterhouse codes, to find out whether an abattoir operates “with or without stunning the animal.”
It is true that this apparent improvement does not affect the food supply. We may wonder whether the labeling requirement for idolatrous meat products announced by President Sarkozy will have a further effect. The app is free and supported by donations.
By the way — as of the time of writing, the PI link given above does not work. I’m told this is due either to a DDOS attack, or a successful attempt by Muslim hackers to take the site offline.
