Data on lead content in different subsamples of roe deer and wild boar
The data are part of the research project on the topic “Safety of game meat obtained through hunting (LEMISI)”. On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) collected the data jointly with the responsible authorities of the Federal States of Saxony-Anhalt, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony, Hesse and Bavaria. The project was supported by various institutions such as the German Hunting Association (DJV), the Bavarian Hunting Association (BJV), the Association of German Professional Hunters (BDB), the European Poultry, Egg and Game Wholesale and Import Society (EPEGA), the Federation of Hunting and Sport Weapon and Ammunition Manufacturers (JSM) and the University for Sustainable Development (HNEE). This data set includes detailed records on lead content in different subsamples of roe deer and wild boar. The primary aim was to obtain a sound data base in order to refine the existing risk assessment of consumption of lead shot game meat.
