(Fatwa: 357/278/D=03/1435)

It was known after going through the writings of several fiqh scholars and researchers that the packets of meat imported from non-Muslim countries with are labelled as “Halal” or “Slaughtered as per the Islamic method” are not altogether reliable. Also it is necessary to take extra care regarding the meat. Hence one should avoid eating such types of meat until it is not known with authentic sources that the meat was slaughtered on Shariah method.
