THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the Linked-in and HalalNews posted on January 20, 2015 .

"The French government confirms the legality of ritual slaughter Responding to a question from a member, the Ministry of Agriculture recalled on January 5 that ritual slaughter, directed by Jews and Muslims without stunning the animal, was legal and consistent with secularism. Indeed, Jews believe that meat is not kosher if the animal was stunned before bleeding." "The text recalls that the derogation from the obligation to stun animals, "under the free exercise of religion" is framed by the French and European law and that this possibility 'does not undermine secularism.'"
"In its response, the Department states that 'slaughter without stunning may be made after immobilization of the animal and respecting all the measures stipulated by the regulations on animal protection and food safety'."
