Washington Hunters Warned of Tularemia in Small Mammals
Spotting of the liver may be due to Tularemia or another infection.
Tularemia is a bacteria and complete cooking most likely would destroy it. However Tularemia is transmissible from game to people by air; therefore it is not advisable to consume rabbits that show signs of Tularemia (white or yellow spots on the liver) cooked or otherwise.

If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
