Due to the toxicological implications of nitrites and nitrates used in the production of meat products, in this paper we referred to two aspects, one regarding the origin of nitrites/nitrates in meat products, and second the risk involved by the use of this substances as food additives. We also present the results of research undertaken within two months of analysis of meat products samples collected from three meat processing units from Cluj county and conclusions resulting from this study. Determinate values showed fluctuations in nitrite content from one processor to another and also in the same processor, depending on the analyzed product type.
