1- The general consensus is that it is permissible to eat the meat of the People of the Book (Ahlul-Kitab),Jews and Christians, if the name of Allah is mentioned at the time of slaughter.

2- If the person mentioned a name other than that of Allah while slaughtering, such as the name ofJesus, then it is not permissible to eat from it. 

The general consensus is that it is permissible to eat the meat of the People of the Book (Ahlul-Kitab), Jews and Christians, if the name of Allah is mentioned at the time of slaughter.

Allah says, “…eat of that on which Allah’s name has been mentioned if you are believers in His communications.” (Al-An`am 6:118)

Allah also says,  “And do not eat of that on which Allah’s name has not been mentioned, and that is most surely a transgression.” (Al-An`am 6:121)

If the person mentioned a name other than that of Allah while slaughtering, such as the name of Jesus, then it is not permissible to eat from such meat.

Allah says, “He has only forbidden you what dies of itself, and blood, and flesh of swine, and that over which any other (name) than (that of) Allah has been invoked.” (Al-Baqarah 2:173)

Also, if it is known in this country that they kill the animals (such as by shooting, suffocating, or strangling them) not slaughter them, then it is forbidden to eat such meat.

But if they are among the People of the Book and they slaughter their animals then it is lawful for Muslims to eat that meat.
