A Muslim man in Michigan is suing Little Caesars for $100 million, claiming he was served a pizza labeled "halal" that contained pepperoni made with pork.
The halal label means the pizza should be prepared in a way that follows Islamic law, and shouldn't contain pork.
The lawsuit was filed by Mohamad Bazzi Thursday and seeks class-action status, The Detroit Free Press reported. Bazzi claims he was twice served "halal" pizza containing pork.
In a statement, Little Caesars said the chain "cherishes our customers from all religions and cultures" and considers the lawsuit to be "without merit."
