Aside from the other considerations as to humane treatment of animals,
and the rest of this mess, I seem to remember hearing that Islam has
rules as to how animals can be treated or slaughtered (similar to the
Jews?). For instance, that a prayer must be said when slaughtering
animals -- that in one high-speed operation a high speed tape was played
next to the decapitation machines. I know very little about this, but
perhaps someone with expertise could evaluate the plans in terms of what
would be religiously permissible for a Muslim to eat?
