What is the ruling on imported meat like Sadia Chicken?

One can deal with such meats on the basis of general rules and can rule that it is halal in two situations:

1) knowing and reassuring yourself that it is halal

2) To look for reasonable evidence that the meat is halal. This is the like buying the meating from a Muslim person with the probability of him having checked and established the imported meat is halal, BUT if there is no probability of him having checked and established that its halal, than you cannot accept that the meat is halal. The same concept for this previous example can also be applied to a middleman(who must be Muslim) that has delivered imported meat to a certain place.
