This review paper aimed to highlight the importance of heavy metals and their presence in animal bodies and in their food products. There are specific organizations that have the role of constantly monitoring the levels of heavy metals and their consequences for human health, if the maximum admissible limits imposed by European legislation are exceeded. Their surveillance has an important role to safeguard consumers in case of a food contamination incident. They address issues such as sustainability, biological diversity, climate change, nutritional economics, population growth, water supply, and access to food. Naturally, heavy metals are not found in the animal body or in the animal food products, but they can be discovered as a result of their conscious or accidental incorporation (contamination) in food and which, by exceeding the acceptable limits, can constitute a health risk factor. As methods of analysis, Graphite Furnace and Flame Atomic Absorbtion Spectrometry were used. Therefore, it is very important to continually assess the levels of these analytes (Lead, Cadmium), to ensure that the values fall within the maximum admissible limits.
