If someone ate an olive size amount of forbidden fat from one of these 3 animals, if deliberate he deserves spiritual severance, if unintentionally he would be required to bring a sin offering.

Sinews in fat are forbidden.

 

The fat of untamed kosher animals is permitted.

 

This applies in all places at all times for men and women.

Do not eat forbidden fat.
