McDonald's: Only halal cakes allowed to meet quality and safety aspects

The notice on halal cakes by McDonald's

PETALING JAYA: McDonald's Malaysia clarified that only halal-certified birthday cakes will be allowed at its restaurants in Malaysia.

In a statement, it said the move "is in line with fulfilling the requirements of the halal certification."

"At McDonald’s, the quality, safety and halal aspects of our products are our utmost priority.

"As a company that offers only halal certified products, we implement a ‘no outside food policy’ to ensure that all products served and consumed at our restaurants are halal," said McDonald's on Thursday.

The company was responding to queries about a notice it put up at outlets regarding its policy on halal birthday cakes brought into the premises.

McDonald's said they have made an exception to the 'no outside food policy' in the case of birthday parties at McDonald's.

However, customers who wish to bring their own birthday cakes must ensure that the cake is certified halal.

"This condition is critical to preserve the integrity of our halal certification," said McDonald's.

"Moving forward, we will continue to strictly uphold all standards and requirements related to food quality, safety and halal so that all our customers may enjoy our products with peace of mind," it said.
