An'am :121" Eat not (O Believers of that (meat) on which Allah's Name has not been pronounced (at the time of the slaughtering of the animals), for  it is Fisq (a sin and disobedience of Allah).  And certainly the devils do inspire their friends (from mankind) to dispute with you, and if you obey them [by making Al-Maytat (a dead animal) legal by eating it], then you would indeed be Mushrikun (polytheists): [because they (devils and their friends )make lawful to you to eat what Allah has made unlawful to eat and you obey them by considering it lawful to eat, and by doing so you worship them, and to worship other besides Allah is polytheism]." Although the Quran states that we may eat meat from the People of the Book, today's Christians are not slaughtering as a religious practice therefore it is void of its religious requirements. And lastly, contrary to popular belief, is is not sufficient to just say Bismillah before eating the meat.  Saying this does not make the meat halaal no more than saying it over pork would make pork halaal.  This is not the case in every place, so do your research as check with the people of knowledge so that you clear yourself of wrong doing.And Allah knows best in these matters. Naturally, some schoalrs hold the opinion that one is allowed to eat the meat in America, and Allah knows best.
