Human beings are omnivorous animal and a majority of foodstuffs are dependent on livestock products. The meat eaters are not less than in numbers than vegans. So, quality of livestock products is an ongoing challenge before mankind. This becomes more critical when meat frauds are getting reported day by day [1,2]. In India meat fraud is often reported and appropriate expert committees are formed to check meat contamination . Still meat fraud is continuing. In academia it seems to be a golden mine of study of such activity as we do not see an academic review of the matter published recently in popular academic bulletin.
