Yep , you read right!  There is a tick that causes red meat allergies and it's been around for quite some time.  The symptoms are not immediate, they show up hours later . . mostly when ppl are asleep ( relaxed):

Tick Causes Red Meat Allergies

Red meat allergies likely result of lone star tick

February 20, 2014

Vanderbilt University Medical Center

Lone star tick bites are likely the cause of thousands of cases of severe red meat allergies that are plaguing patients in Southeastern United States including Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia and spreading up the Eastern Seaboard along with the deer population. The allergy can cause hives and swelling, as well as broader symptoms of anaphylaxis including vomiting, diarrhea, trouble breathing, and a drop in blood pressure. Persons with the allergy can go into a delayed anaphylactic shock four-six hours after eating red meat."
