Due to the recent news of McDonalds Malaysia banning non-halal birthday cakes on their premises, McDonalds spokesman Faz Hussen has clarified on the issue to the local mainstream news.
Mr Hussen said that although McDonalds does not allow outside food on their premises, birthday cakes are an exception. However, birthday cakes brought into the premises have to been halal certified and this practice has been in place since McDonalds received their halal certification in 1992.
He added that as a halal certified food establishment, McDonalds Singapore has to strictly follow the regulations set out under the halal certification to ensure their food complies with halal requirements so that it is permissible for muslims in Singapore to patronize.
During the food preparation process, McDonalds Singapore takes precaution to ensure their food products are not mixed with non-halal certified products.
