The menu was launched in April to appeal to Britain's Muslims. All pork products, including bacon and ham, were banned and meat had to be slaughtered under Islamic laws, The Daily Star reports.

But it provoked a huge backlash from non-Muslim customers, who accused the fast food giant of catering to the political correctness brigade.

Alan Philipps, was told that he could not have his favourite Big Daddy burger with bacon because it was against halal rules. KFC bosses at Burton-on-Trent, Staffs, told him he would have to drive to another branch five miles away.

Alan said: "It was like they were saying I couldn't buy bacon because it might offend people. I have many friends who are black, white and Muslim, but they wouldn't be forced to eat non- halal meat."
