Doritos/Cheetos are Haram...

Comment:
I was passed along a message that Frito-Lay products containing cheese (Cheetos and Doritos) are made using pork enzymes.

Here is the message:

Dear Friends,
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this weekend I found out that Doritos have pork in them. Well, I was
shocked and a little skeptical. However, when I called the company, they confirmed that their cheese products were not halal -- they actually used the term "halal", which I found impressive even though the disclosure was disconcerting. She said they use enzymes in making the cheese for their cheetos and doritos that come from pork. I asked when they started doing this, and she said the last 2 years they became aware of it. I wanted to start a petition requesting them to find alternatives, but she said it would be best for
individuals to call, because each call is registered. So, if you are going to miss cheetos and doritos as much as I am, please call Frito-Lay at 1-800-352-4477, Monday - Friday, 9:00am-4:30pm.
Also, pass on this info to whomever you know.

Apparently, the enzyme that is used to produce the cheese flavor we all
love could be from either a pig or a cow. Therefore, the company
recommends to pork avoiding consumers not to eat any of their "cheese" products. However, the enzyme is a by-product of pork, which is used in Dorritos & Cheetos.

If you'd like to confirm for yourself, Frito Lay's telephone number is 1-800-352-4477. Please forward this message on to others.

Frito Lay stated that the cheese has enzymes made from animal products. An ingredient change has been requested and forwarded to the marketing department.
