Hi i find this strange thing inside fat of my lamb. What is this? I already threw it away but I'm not sure if i can eat other parts of lamb now or is it all infected? Thanks in advance.

It looks like the adrenal gland. Did it come from the fat deposit back by the kidneys?

If it was the adrenals, they are fine to eat though best to spread over a few days rather than all at once.

Looks like a lymphnode, and they are usually found embedded in the internal fats especially around the digestive organs.

Actually you can often tell the general health of the animal using the lymphnodes as an indicator. The healthiest animals will have very light colored lymphnode that will have a really sweat creamy texture and taste. The darker, more bitter and tougher lymphnodes usually indicate potential health and quality issues.
A man who makes a beast of himself, forgets the pain of being a man.
