Ask your MEPs to support the accurate labelling of ritually slaughtered produce
In the UK, up to two-thirds of kosher and halal meat is sold on into the general market but it is not labelled as such.
In June 2010 the European Parliament agreed that meat and meat products derived from animals that have not been stunned prior to slaughter should be labelled as 'Meat from slaughter without stunning'. Unfortunately this was rejected by the European Council.
The issue has now returned to the European Parliament, where amendments 353 and 359 to the EU 'Proposal for the Provision of Food Information to Consumers' calls again for meat derived from non pre-stunned animals to be labelled 'Meat from slaughter without stunning'
Please write to your MEPs to urge them to support the amendments due to be debated on 11th April 2011.
