Just wondering since kangaroo is gaining popularity as a lean red meat (and is now exported to 55 countries), if any one has heard of reasons why you can't eat kangaroo offal (like heart, liver, kidneys, etc), like that of other animals like pork, chicken etc. if you cook it properly (ie over 60c/140f)?

I would find a definitive answer before eating. Only because early arctic explorers found out the hard way you can't eat polar bear liver because it contains an enormous amount of vitamin A. A very small amount will cause terminal vitamin A toxicity in humans.
Kangaroo liver is probably fine but you are wise to check first.

Great example.
