Game sausage & sticks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is there a regulated amount of game meat that has to be in snack sticks or sausage to be labled venison, elk, bear, etc? Or is it a trace amount with beef or pork & call it venison sausage?

I would IMHO say the main meat,Venison Elk etc. would have to be the most 75% 

 

pork or beef filler 25%

Outside of whole cuts, labeling regulations can be dependant on the size of your business... a small butcher could have a complete exception and not follow any labeling regulations outside of whole cuts

There is a deer processing/butcher by me in Michigan & they sell quite a bit of "game" summer sausage & sticks so thats why I am curious. I am guessing I could do some research with the state what the requirements are when it comes to this. Thanks for your input.

if its good i would bet money that it, at minimum has about 30% added pork fat.

Yup. All of the snack stick recipes I have seen call for at-or-near 50/50 ratio venison to pork.

I know there are tons of recipes & ratios I am really curious to know if it is regulated to say a product has to be a certain % "venison" in order to be labled "venison" or if they can mix 10 lbs venison to 90 lbs beef or pork & call it a "venison" products.
