Halal search option removed from Subway website over staff safety fears

This week, Subway revealed that around 185 of their stores are serving halal only meats with ham and bacon being replaced by turkey based products.

One of these stores is located in New Bedford Road, Luton and until today you could select halal only stores from the website to find out where your nearest was. However, today the company have removed this option from their website due to concerns over staff safety.

A press officer for Subway told Bedfordshire On Sunday that the decision to take the search option off the website was taken in response to a number of threatening and offensive emails and social media posts, which led to concerns about the safety of employees at these outlets.

However they did state that there would be clear notices in store informing customers that the meat being sold was halal.
