Aduan Isu Halal dan Logo Halal

Assalamualaikum w.b.t.

Malam semalam saya dan isteri mengunjungi pasaraya JUSCO Wangsa Maju untuk membeli barangan dapur seperti biasa. Ketika melalui bahagian produk mee segera, saya ternampak satu produk yang mengelirukan berkenaan ketulenan halal produk tersebut dan ianya diletakkan bersama produk mee segera yang halal.

Jika tidak silap saya, perkataan Bak Kut Teh adalah penyediaan sup yang menggunakan daging khinzir. Di bawah adalah definisi yang di ambil dari wiki.org:

“The name literally translates as “meat bone tea”, and, at its simplest, consists of meaty pork ribs simmered in a complex broth of herbs and spices (including star anise, cinnamon, cloves, dang gui, fennel seeds and garlic) for hours.”

Selain dari itu, saya mendapati terdapat logo halal swasta, iaitu IFRC International pada produk tersebut. Merujuk kepada website Hab Halal Jakim, permohonan akan ditolak jika produk yang menggunakan nama yang sinonim dengan istilah yang mengelirukan seperti bak kut the dan sebagainya.

Dilampirkan adalah gambar yang diambil menggunakan telefon Blackberry isteri saya. Diharap pihak media dapat menyiarkan isu ini kepada pengguna Islam lain. Amin.

Terima kasih.

Isu ini agak berbahaya sebenarnya. Kita tidak menafikan bahawa terdapat Bak Kut Teh yang halal tanpa mengandungi sebarang kandungan babi di dalamnya. Apa yang membuatkan ianya berbahaya adalah penggunaan nama “Bak Kut Teh Halal” di mana lama-kelamaan pasti akan mengelirukan terutama untuk golongan kanak-kanak, remaja atau sesiapa sahaja yang tidak pernah ambil kisah tentang soal halal dan haram. Lebih bermasalah bila nama Bak Kut Teh itu telah dianggap halal kerana telah sebati dengan produk-produk Bak Kut Teh yang halal terjual di pasaran.

JAKIM telah mengeluarkan kenyataan sebelum ini yang melarang mana-mana syarikat untuk menggunakan nama “Bak Kut Teh” dalam produk mereka biarpun tidak mengandungi sebarang kandungan babi. Berikut adalah berita yang dikeluarkan di The Star.

THE use of the term bak kut teh halal will not only confuse Muslims but it is also against fiqah (Islamic way of life and practices), reported Utusan Malaysia.

The daily quoted Islamic Development Department of Malaysia (Jakim) deputy director-general Lokman Abdul Rahman as saying that bak kut teh could not be deemed halal because it still carried an “illegal name” under Islamic law.

He stressed that the dish would not be issued any halal certificate based on procedures set by Jakim.

“There may be people who will apply for the certificate but Jakim will not certify the food as halal because it is very clear that it does not comply with Islamic law.

“We are worried that the Muslim community will misunderstand that the food is halal if we issue the certificate,” he said.

Lokman said the name bak kut teh referred to soup and pork used to prepare the dish.

“My recommendation is for the relevant parties to use another name for bak kut teh halal,” he said.

He was commenting on bak kut teh halal introduced at the Fabulous Food 1Malaysia — Malaysia Restaurant Food Festival ceremony at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur recently.

Bak kut teh halal ingredients include chicken, seafood and vegetables, in place of pork, which is normally used for the dish.

Marriot Hotel executive chef Zaffar Abdul Samad said the dish was 100% halal in terms of its recipe and ingredients.

Muslim Consumers Association of Malaysia secretary-general Datuk Dr Maamor Osman also disagreed with the introduction of bak kut teh halal.

“I am worried that misusing the term will slowly reduce the disinclination of Muslims towards pork. I hope Jakim can take strict measures to ensure that the food does not get halal certification,” he said. – The Star

Jika anda rujuk artikel kami sebelum ini, JAKIM juga telah mengeluarkan amaran kepada semua rakyat Malaysia bahawa hanya cop halal rasmi dari JAKIM yang sah digunapakai bermula 2012 dan semua cop halal swasta lain mahupun cop halal luar tidak lagi sah digunapakai di Malaysia.

Apa pendapat anda berkaitan hal ini?

Update: Jawpan dari pihak Jaya Jusco

Salam,

Thank you for your feedback. I am really appreciate it and based on it; I believe that you are very careful person and very concern on every single thing around you. There is nothing you should worry about with our store management and products because our philosophy and policy always support our customer and put the priority to our customer.

About the issue been highlighted by you before, actually Bak kut Teh refer to the meaning of Ribs’ Herb. Means it could be refer to any ribs of animals. It is not necessarily refer to pork. But to our people, unofficially, it is synonyms with pork because the terms widely used at Chinese restaurant.

Back to Jusco policy, actually we not just simply put or display our products anywhere we like. We have to follow a very strict policy issued by HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) and they have a very strict guideline to follow. Simple understanding for HACCP in the beef industry is HACCP as a production control system for the food industry. It is a process that identifies where potential contamination can occur and strictly manages and monitors these points as a way of ensuring the process is in control and that the safest product possible is being produced. HACCP is designed to prevent rather than catch potential hazards too.

So, Jusco really follows the rules set up by them. But for some imported food, their countries not practice to put HALAL signs or symbol on the packaging. Sometimes the terms used by them example like; “approved by Muslim community” but written in their special writing or language. Definitely we cannot understand on it. In Malaysia, we have JAKIM to issue HALAL logo. Even for imported product, they still strictly monitored by HACCP and nothing have exceptional of it. Only after passing the strict quality control and standard (for ingredients too) then, HACCP will decide either it is really can category in HALAL and safe for everyone. Sometimes, even they stated there as HALAL product but after product testing, it is still fail and unable to category in HALAL products.

After some explanation given, the rest I live it to you. It is back to your level of confidence. In Islam, if we believe and have our own stand (ik’tiqad) on certain issue based on valid explanation (from al-Quran and as-sunnah) and concrete reason, we can proceed to do it. But if we think it is syubhah and not confident on it even based on whatever proof or reason, we should ignore it.

The conclusion of the issue here, based on the lab test with strict policy, rules and regulation, it is safe to eat. But if we are not confident, just live it and do not take the product. Why display among the HALAL food? Yes, according to the strict lab test by HACCP, all the ingredients and process are follow the standard of HALAL food as declared on the packaging.

yours faithfully,
