Oh, and they are calling for a boycott. 

Campbell’s has released several soups in Canada that are halal-certified–meaning they meet the dietary restrictions set by the Islamic Society of North America.

Although Campbell’s has had these soups on the market for months now, conservative bloggers and activists have just picked up the cause against the company. Insinuating that Campbell’s is part of a “brotherhood” with radical terrorists, they’re demanding a boycott of the company.

And because what’s a cause without a Facebook page these days, there is now a page on the social networking site called “Boycott Campbell Soup,” which sadly has nearly 3000 members. (via Talking Points Memo)
