Question put to McDonalds: Hi, I am a Muslim and I would like to ask a question about your Filet-O-Fish sandwiches. As a Muslim I can eat fish (as it is regarded as Halal) and my question is: Are the Filet-O-Fish sandwiches cooked in 100% Vegetable Oil or is the same oil also used to cook other animal meat (for example chicken)? Your help in answering this question will be very appreciated. Thanks.
Response from McDonalds: Thanks for your question. None of our food is certified as Halal. Our Filet-o-Fish patty is cooked separately from meat items in 100% vegetable oil. However, due to the design of the oil filtration system there is a small chance the oil used to cook these patties can become in contact with oil used to cook meat products during the oil filtering process. We therefore cannot guarantee cross-contamination will not occur, but have taken measures to minimise the amount of any cross-contamination.

Question put to McDonalds: Is Mcdonalds Fillet-O-Fish halal, because I read online it is prepared in lard something which Muslims can’t consume, so can you please clarify.
Response from McDonalds: Thanks for your question. We understand that fish itself is not considered halal or haram, but we can confirm that the Filet-O-Fish does not contain any meat ingredients and is cooked in 100% vegetable oil, separately from other products.
