Rejected petition Label 'Ritually Slaughtered' products 'RS' whether livestock are stunned or not.
Food Labelling Regulations 1996 require information to be given on all pre-packed foods, so informed choices can be made.
It's strictly forbidden for some Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists & Christians to consume anything associated with Ritual Slaughter [RS] or a Religious Standard [RS]. Please Label 'RS'
'RS' sign signifies:
Ritual Slaughter with or without stunning or Reversibly Stunned [RS], including the Haram 'Rejected Substandard' [RS] meat
Products following a Religious Standard [RS], such as Certification according to Sharia Law.
NOTE: the RS Label is not a sign of authenticity for halal
Shoppers and Consumers need transparency in Labelling of 'RS', so that they do not unwittingly buy something they do not require.
We support EU’s Food Information Regulation (FIR).
