The article presents a study on the epidemiological ratio of melanosis in a commercial slaughterhouse in Valencia, Spain. The study involved 44,777 slaughtered animals categorized into three groups that underwent independent chi-squared test and statistical analysis. Subsequently, 41 hyperpigmentation cases were found during post-mortem inspections, and two carcasses were determined not suited for human consumption. The results show zero statistical differences in the prevalence of melanosis.
