Yoreh Deah Siman 13 Seif 4

ד

בֶּן ט’ חַי שֶׁנִּמְצָא בִּמְעֵי שְׁחוּטָה כְּשֵׁרָה, וְגָדַל וּבָא עַל בְּהֵמָה דְּעָלְמָא וְהוֹלִיד, אוֹתוֹ הַוָּלָד אֵין לוֹ תַּקָּנָה בִּשְׁחִיטָה. וְאִם בָּא עַל בַּת פְּקוּעָה כַּיּוֹצֵא בּוֹ, הֲרֵי בְּנוֹ וּבֶן בְּנוֹ עַד סוֹף כָּל הַדּוֹרוֹת, כָּמוֹהוּ, וְכֻלָּם צְרִיכִים שְׁחִיטָה מִדִּבְרֵיהֶם, וְאֵין הַטְּרֵפוּת פּוֹסֵל בָּהֶם.

 

Seif 4

If a living 9-month fetus was found in the womb of a kosher-slaughtered animal, and the fetus grew up and mated with a regularly-born animal and begot a child, the child cannot be made kosher by shechitah (?).  If the fetus grew up and mated with a female animal who was similarly a fetus from a kosher slaughter, then their children, and grandchildren, for all generations, are also halachically considered to be like a fetus taken from a kosher slaughter, just like their parents.  Although the Torah does not require these animal to be slaughtered by shechitah and are kosher without shechitah, the Rabbis still require them to have shechitah as a rabbinical law.  However, they are not rendered non-kosher if they have a treifah.
