Shawerma banned

After the third mass shawerma poisoning within the last year, the government has decided to banish the greasy treat from the country’s restaurants. This ban will last until they figure out how to keep it safe.

I suppose this is prudent, although it punishes clean establishments for the sins of the unhygienic. Maybe they should prevent people from drinking water as well.

I've said this one before, Shawirma can either taste good, or be clean.

I've just verified that the ban is only on chicken shawerma.
good, Shawerma Reem (i.e. real shawerma) is all safe.
alhamdullilah!

This is becoming an endemic problem, good thinking on the part of the government, there has to be some kind of a mechanism dealing with the problem of uncooked and semi cooked chicken. And for those that thought it is hygiene problem, it isn't.

Tadween: I wouldn't eat the PM's shawerma! He can't be a better mua'lem shawerma than a politician!

Kinzi: I am worried about your eating habits.

mmm: Good luck. Don't forget the napkins.

Arrabi: You eat red meat Shawerma? I salute your courage!

Hatem: Salmonela is a hygiene problem, exasperated by poor cooking.

Hi everyone, I tried to do a story about the water poisoning for National Public Radio in the United States, but it was a little too local. Still, I managed to do something about Jordan's water problems:

Thanks for raising these issues -
