A Muslim family in Alabama found bacon in 14 McChicken sandwiches they ordered from a Decatur McDonald’s. The family was reportedly on holiday from New York and stopped at the McDonald’s to eat after a day out at a nearby water park, according to local media outlet Al.com.
The Alabama chapter of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) demanded an investigation into the incident. Khaula Hadeed, the head of the Alabama chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, called the incident “an intentional act of religious and ethnic bigotry.”
“They ordered 14 sandwiches. They started noticing it tasted different to them. They eat McChicken all the time at McDonald’s. They knew what they ordered — they know what’s in the sandwich,” she told AL.com.
