Abstract : This study was carried out to determine the level of contamination with lead element in some
animal products (meat, milk and egg), that sold in four public markets in Khartoum state
(Jackson, Mayo, Alftahab and Souk Seta). The lead concentration in animal products was
determined in the Central Laboratory, (Shambat complex) University of Khartoum. The
results showed that, there were significant differences) p<0.05(, of lead level in meat samples.
Souk Seta reported the highest lead level (0.11µg/g) in meat samples compared to other three
public markets and the limits of Sudanese Standards and Metrology Organization (SSMO)
(the permissible limits) of lead level in meat(0.1µg/g),(2008a).No significance difference
between milk samples from different markets, but Mayo market showed the highest
concentration of lead in milk(0.0023µg/ml),compared to other markets ,but less than the
limits of SSMO (0.02µg/ml),(2008b).Regarding the results of egg samples there was no
significance difference between four public markets in Khartoum state, but Alftahab market
showed a higher lead concentration (0.133µg/ml).
