Summary: 

MUSLIM parents are being urged not to allow their children to eat meat at school over concerns that the produce is not being prepared correctly. Lancashire Council of Mosques (LCM) issued a warning after it said it found that suppliers providing meat and chicken to Lancashire County Council (LCC) for use in schools were not maintaining the high halal standards they expected.

But LCC has assured worried parents that their halal options were all sourced from accredited suppliers.
