One of the most common questions I get this time of year is where to find halal turkeys. Halal turkeys are turkeys that have been slaughtered in a manner that abides by Islamic dietary law. They are no different than the turkeys you purchase in your supermarket, except for how they are slaughtered. Many people, including those who are not Muslim, agree that the way the turkeys are killed is more humane than how other turkeys are killed.
You can get them fresh from a halal butcher, but they are few and far between in the United States. However, many grocers like Giant Food, sell frozen and fresh halal turkeys in their chains in some area markets, like northern Virginia. Where else can you find a halal turkey?
