Are animals stunned before slaughter?

May 21, 2018

Yes, all animals are stunned prior to slaughter. All of the meat on the McDonald's U.K. menu is sourced from carefully selected and approved abattoirs that are compliant, not just with EU welfare regulations, but with McDonald's own rigorous quality, hygiene, food safety, animal welfare and traceability standards. This means adhering to specific legislation and associated guidance during transportation and slaughter, including effective stunning prior to slaughter.
