Eating meat when it is uncertain whether it has been cooked with utensils used for pork

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Is it permissible to eat meat dishes at non muslim restuarants where pork and/or alcohol is served. It is not known whether the meat was slaughtered Islamically or not. However the meat and the pork are stored in the same refrigerator and/or cooked using the same utensils.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

What the Muslim should do if this is the case, is to avoid eating in these restaurants. He should look for halaal meat in halaal places, even if that is a little difficult for him, because of the importance in Islam of ensuring that food comes from good sources.  

And Allaah knows best.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
