180 - EATING NEVELAH
Eating an olive’s size of the flesh of a nevelah is punished by whipping.
“Blood and nevelah, i.e. the flesh of an animal that has died of itself, are indigestible, and injurious as food; t’refah, an animal in a diseased state, is on the way to becoming nevelah.”*
For eating the flesh of an unclean animal or beast that has died of itself one incurs punishment for violation of Commandment 172; the Commandment now under consideration and the following refer only to clean animals.*
