Answered by: Maulana Abrarul H. Hasib
Someone told me that apparently Crescent products can’t be trusted as they do vertical slaughter even with cows.
In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful
After correspondence with the HMS (Halal Monitoring Services), we have learned the following:
Crescent does not slaughter any beef. They only produce chicken.
Crescent sells beef from Australia/New Zealand which is monitored by local Ulama organizations affiliated with HMS.
None of these plants conducts vertical cut slaughter as HMS requires. Hence, HMS-affiliated Ulama consider it impermissible.
