He has forbidden you only Al‐Maytatah (meat of a dead animal), blood, the flesh of swine, and any animal which is slaughtered as a sacrifice for others than Allâh (or has been slaughtered for idols etc. or on which Allâh’s Name has not been mentioned while slaughtering). But if one is forced by necessity, without wilful disobedience, and not transgressing, then, Allâh is Oft‐Forgiving, Most Merciful. ( The Holy  Qur’an Al‐Imran 3:115‐116)

“O ye who believe! Eat of the good things wherewith We have provided you, and render thanks to Allah if it is (indeed) He whom ye worship” (Holy Qur’an 2:172).

The Apostle of Allah then said: When one of you eats food, he should say: O Allah, bless us in it, and give us food (or nourishment) better than it. (Hadith ‐ Abu Dawu Narrated Abdullah ibn Abbas)
 
The Apostle of Allah  prohibited eating the animal which feeds on filth and drinking its milk. ( Hadith ‐ Abu Dawud, Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar).
