Question ID: 27950


i wish to inquire about the scalding process at the chicken factories.

the slaughtered chickens are immersed whilst still bleeding with the
intestines, impurities etc into a hot water tank for softening the
feathers etc, this water is filthy and some of the impurities are possibly
absorbed into the flesh.
approx 500 to 700 birds at any point in time with all the impurities etc
could be in this hot water at any point in time, where it remains for
approx 5min.
how does this process affect the status of the meat?

does the meat remain halaal or does it become makrooh or haraam for Muslim
thank you, Jazakallah
