McDonald’s has just paid $700,000 to members of the Muslim community in Detroit after one of its local franchises falsely advertised to be serving halal food that wasn’t actually prepared according to Islamic dietary laws.

Ahmed Ahmed, a Muslim Detroit resident claims that he had bought a chicken sandwich in September 2011 at the Dearborn McDonald’s and found that it wasn’t halal. The fast-food restaurant is one of two McDonald’s in Dearborn that is said to sell halal products catering to one of America’s largest Muslim and Arab communities.

Together Ahmed and his lawyer Kassem Dakhlallah conducted an investigation and then launched a class-action lawsuit on the grounds that the franchise in question was selling non-halal food on many occasions.

McDonald’s and Finley’s Management have agreed to a tentative settlement of $700,000 to be shared between Mr. Ahmed, his lawyer Dakhlallah, the Arab American National Museum, and a Detroit health clinic.
