These meat species are also potential carriers of hepatitis, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), anthrax, and some other deadly zoonoses. Feline meat is not only taboo in most cultures but also under religious prohibition. Cat meats were often sold as rabbit meats and since cat population is huge in most parts of the world and its meat does not have any value in legal markets, cat meat could be considered as a highly potential adulterant in halal, kosher, and other foods. DNA analysis represents a primary defense against this food fraud and this Real-Time PCR kit detects CAT traces down to 0.1% (w/w) in DNA extracted from any food product.
