How can we say something is halal when its ingredients are kept secret?

gices 09 Apr 2013

It is said to be halal and they've got a certificate to prove it as well. However my neighbour, an old muslim woman, says although the meat itself might be halal, the ingredients they use to make the kentucky spice might not be.

So you're free to draw your own conclusion.

Technically speaking they are not halal. Simply because they have their secret receipe which they cant show or give away to have the halal certification.As simple as that. Bt i dont mind eating there, because im not sensible to these. but i have friends who are.

I think the question should be asked to KFC themselves. They are not very keen on displaying any certificates nor are they keen in having being certified by a Halal committee in Mauritius like others are doing (debonnairs, steers, nando's port louis among many others). Is there anything they are hiding. Also beware that an oulet with a halal logo does not automatically mean halal food are served. Rely only on certificates from the Jummah Masjid or the Halaal Research Committee. I have heard an example where a person was displaying the halal certificate of the slaughter house from where he buys chicken but he actually added wine to fried rice. Please be very careful.
