      The class-action lawsuits filed last year included Hindus, Sikhs, Jews and
      vegetarians � all groups with clear reasons for wanting beef-free fries.

      But this week, American Muslims started an e-mail campaign, saying that the
      Islamic food code called "halal" means they were just as injured by
      McDonald's and should be included in the settlement.

      Muslims who follow halal are supposed to avoid eating beef that was not
      slaughtered according to specific ritual requirements. Muslims who ate
      McDonald's fries assuming that the potatoes were halal have until Monday to
      officially register their unhappiness with a judge in Chicago.
