[NPR] Whole Foods: Ramadan Promotion Has Not Been Canceled

Looking to set the record straight, the Whole Foods grocery chain says it is "still carrying and promoting halal products for those that are celebrating Ramadan this month."

The company's statement follows a Houston Press blog post earlier this week that said pressure from "right-wing bloggers who blindly associate Ramadan and Muslims with terrorism and burqas," had led Whole Foods to send an email "to its stores across the United States in which it specifically tells stores not to promote Ramadan this year."

The Houston Press is the worst magazine/press ever. Fact checking went out the door a few years ago.
