The present study was conducted to determine the level of the presence of heavy metal especially lead (Pb), chromium (Cr) and cadmium (Cd) in various body parts of broiler chicken (Liver, Bone, Core, Meat & Skin) from the Rajshahi City local markets. All results show negative effect where the highest quantity of Pd, Cr and Cd in feed is below the detection limit (BD), 0.0432, 0.0053 ppm respectively. However, the highest quantity of Pd, Cr and Cd in body parts of Chicken is 0.1313 in bone, 0.0977 and 0.0069 in skin which are safe for consumption considering the allowable WHO / FAO limit of Pb, Cr, Cd are 1.0ppm, 1.0ppm, 0.3ppm respectively. Moreover, mercury (Hg) is a vaporized, molten metal that is vaporized at the cooking temperature. As a result we can be confident that the checked product was safe for consumption as an animal protein.
