Default Not Halal

Every time we do a big shop I get a few jars of Princes sardine and tomato paste (don't judge please, it's one of my favourite 80s foodstuffs).
Anyway..... for the past few weeks they’ve also sold the chicken paste.
I'm a nosey beggar so I emailed Princes to ask if it's halal as it’s not stored in the sin section. It isn't.

This is the third time I've come across this kind of thing in various supermarkets (beef & ale pies and poppy seeds in boxes of crackers).

How much bother would they be in if caught?

Why isn't sardine in tomato paste halal ?


Shouldn't it just be sardines and tomatos ?

Oooh, it's lovely spread on cheap white bread with best butter and some salt and vinegar square crisps.

It's the chicken paste that's not halal. Now this is nasty but my husband loves it.

Not halal because someone didn't mutter a prayer and slice the throats of the chickens in the right way?

Probably pork fat and/or gelatin so it's not just non-halal, it's haram...

Yep, I'm assuming so because there's no mention of any pork derivatives.

Didn't think of that.

Assumed it would be this.

If fish without scales are haram, how come I see Omanis buying bags of cuttle fish and squid whenever I’m in Carrefour here in Muscat?

I thought all seafood was halal. Certainly that's the rule my other half follows - or did follow when he used to follow the rules. He used to subsist on tuna pizzas in pizza express when in London. I therefore also know the location of lots of seafood restaurants in various European cities...

It would make sense for crab and lobsters and suchlike to be haram because they are bottom feeders. That's how it's interpreted in Judaism (I used to date a lot of Jewish men). To be kosher the seafood must have both fins and scales. But most Jews I know still happily chow down.
