Halal Pork?

According to Wikipedia,

Halal (حلال, alālHalaal) is an Arabic term designating any object or an action which is permissible to use or engage in, according to Islamic law.

Also, according to the Qur'an 2:173

He hath only forbidden you dead meat, and blood, and the flesh of swine, and that on which any other name hath been invoked besides that of Allah. But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, nor transgressing due limits,- then is he guiltless. For Allah is Oft-forgiving Most Merciful. 

Anyway have a look at this,

Notice the "halal" logo at the bottom right corner. Really hilarious. Those people over at China must've thought that the halal logo is required for them to market their stuffs here in Malaysia.

Anyway, we can't really blame them with all the fuss going on about having "halal hotels", "halal toothpaste", etc. etc.
