Super King Market Fined Over Half-a-Million Dollars for Selling Fake Halal Meat

super_king_market.png
I've long shopped at Super King Market in that part of Anaheim that bleeds into Stanton, not just for their super-cheap produce but also to see my Orange County: the waves of Latinos, Muslims, Eastern Europeans, Asians, and plain ol' 'mericans shopping in peace, and even learning from each other--my mami is now a babaghanoush fanatic.

But I'm afraid I can never shop at Super King again, after the store just settled a case for $527,000 brought upon it by the Orange County District Attorney's office for falsely selling halal meat.

The suit came about, according to an OC DA press release, after inspectors with the Orange County Health Department noticed that Super King would bring in meat into their store that wasn't marked halal, then commingle that meat with halal meat, and label everything as kosher (like my Abrahamic dietary restriction joke)?

The press release says that Super King does not admit to guilt, but come on! You don't mess with people's religion, especially when it comes to food, ESPECIALLY in Little Arabia. You'd never see Northgate González pull this shit, trashing behind their back the very customer base that made it successful, just like Super King just did. I predict Super King will suffer greatly from this revelation with its Muslim customers...and this kaffir.

Muslims should never get any special treatment from Americans after what they did to us in 911. I think they should be rounded up and put behind bars and then they can eat each other and poof they will all be gone in a matter of days. Muslims suck.

So I shopped at superking and mybill came up to $100. I was surprized cause I usually spend less. I was checking through the receipt and found that I had paid $27 for 3 green onions bunches @ $9 a case. The advertized price is 5 bunches for $1 so I should have paid $.60. I paid attention, but I wonder if these so called "mistakes" are a way to recover the fine. Always check your receipts. I am so dissappointed. This was the only place I bought produce from.

Super king is Armenian owned. The meat was never halal. never. I knew it from the first time I walked in there two years ago. You gotta be brain dead to think otherwise. The funny thing is that there are arab store owners in anaheim who claim to sell halal meat and I know for a fact it is not. Jewish people never play with the kosher label. it's serious. Muslims need to get it together. They lie to each other and play with the religion. sad.

They were greedy people and the owners arent even muslim themselves.  A good lesson from this is for muslims to support muslim owned businesses when it comes to halal and you need to ask for verification.

This reminds me of the time I went to go eat out at a restaurant and even though the meat was not halal I asked them Not to put bacon in my sandwich. The waiter then brought my plate and I examined my meal before consumption and found bacon in it. I sent it back asking them to make me a new sandwich. I had distrust in the restaurant already and I sort of followed waiter and I noticed that the chief just threw the bacon out of my sandwich. I ended up just leaving and never going back again. I was appalled.

Not Halal .... What a fraud.  With all the money they make from muslim shoppers you would think they would never do anything to decieve their loyal customers. This is unacceptable for any religious group.

$527,000 for ONE store's meat advertised to be Halal that wasn't Halal? Allah needs THAT much money to soothe the contaminated souls of his followers who probably didn't eat any infidel meat anyhow? Was the judge named Mohammed? Also - why are you meat heads at Meatingplace throwing National's logo into this article? Is it National Beef's fault too? Do you guys wish to get sued for 527k by some loco Muslims too? Or by National Beef - for even more money? The requirements to make meat Halal aren't that strict. Ask anyone who sells offals or chicken to Africa and the like. It is the biggest scam ever. Many of the Halal meats are just rubber stamped as Halal while they play a tape of the Iman saying prayers in the background. This article is infuriating. How can they get away with that much $$ over this sort of thing? Wake up people! Do not pay crazed Muslims over a half million because their beef wasn't blessed enough to make them satisfied with the scam they bought into, and do put a rubber stamp on the meat you want to sell as Halal. This was just one store people - one unit in a chain. 527k. Their meat department probably doesn't sell that much meat the entire year!

Some Muslims only eat halal meat which is similar to kosher meaning they will eat fast food but nothing with meat in it.

$527K fine, chicken feed, loss of good will of hundreds/thousands of shoppers, like you, that's where their pain will be.

What stupid thing to do.

dumb ass, they are not paying muslims that amount of money. It's called a fine and not a settlement or a compensation. It seems you are not fond of the existence of Muslims in America, you have the right to dislike or even hate them, but i got some news for you, they are here to stay, so see what you can do about that.

Mahoney342 were you born tarded or it happened over the course?  The figure is based on sales revenue.

Read the article, Mahoney -- the OC DA brought the case, not an offended muslim, and the money goes into County and State coffers.  It's essentially a FINE.  And I hate to burst your bubble, but $527K is chickenfeed to a supermarket chain.  They make a whole lot more money selling you frozen meat that has had it's expiration tags updated for a year. . .
