Accumulation level of cadmium and lead was determined in m. longissimus dorsi, m. biceps femoris, liver and kidney of 15 young castrated goat males and 12 young wethers from Rzeszow region. On the bassis of Polish regulations the meat of animals of both species was considered as fully acceptable for consumption. Livers and kidneys of animals of both species were found to contain relatively high levels of cadmium, and lead, and thus were considered of a limited nutritive value. Cadmium level in liver and kidney of sheep was higher (p ≤ 0.05) than in respective organs of goats. While the levels of lead did not differ between the liver and kidney, or between goats and sheep.
