Yep, I have two relatives with allergies to mammal meat. Both have been exposed to ticks. It's a really strange allergy and difficult to diagnose because the reaction is delayed.

I like how one of the links at the side of the article was asking for suggestions of recipes suitable for those with a meat allergy. Because recipes without meat are SO specialist and difficult to find.

there was a woman at my old job whose spouse had this. he could still eat chicken, turkeys, and fish so all he did was eat a ton of those animals instead of trying to eat more plant based. i wish those ticks would make it so people would become allergic to all animal products. :D

I have a friend who was diagnosed with this for a while, but turned out to be something else. They still haven't figured out what the allergy is, so she has to carry an epi pen everywhere. But it is a real thing!

I've heard there are an obscure group of people who do not have this allergy but choose to avoid meat. They have some sort of weird name for themselves like veterinarian or degetarian. Oh, yes, I remember, they call themselves vegetarians! It's too bad one of them hasn't thought of writing a cook book full of their strange meatless recipes.
