Food safety and hygiene are always prioritized in Halal-certified meat which reduces the risk of food contamination. Halal meat farmers avoid using antibiotics and pesticides that many other profit-driven farms employ. When it comes to contamination and food illness, halal food has a low occurrence rate. In Islamic Law, contamination or cross-contamination is something that the halal meat farmer has to be wary of. The blood must be completely drained from the carcass in the process of Islamic slaughtering, as it results in better, fresher meat devoid of pathogen infestation.
Conventional beef, the kind you’re used to seeing at a grocery store, comes from grain-fed cattle that are raised in feedlots. Animal welfare implications deserve an entirely different post, but we’d be remiss to neglect a few glaring issues:
- Cows are not evolved to eat corn or grain. After 6 months of life, conventional cattle are forced to eat grain and corn to expedite weight gain at a lower cost.
- This means cows get sick with conditions including liver damage, acidosis, and blood disease. As a result, cows are given large doses of preventative antibiotics in their feed.
- Feedlot conditions are stressful and unnatural. Rather than being bred on pastures, as nature intended, cows are packed into close quarters and in unsanitary conditions.
