Odom’s Tennessee Pride Sausage Co. Inc. announces the introduction of its first all-natural breakfast sausage. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) says in order for a breakfast sausage to be classified as “All Natural,” it cannot contain artificial ingredients, and must be minimally processed. The introduction of the mild, 1-pound package of Tennessee Pride breakfast sausage meets these stringent guidelines. The new All Natural sausage package is an eye-catching green, which will help the consumer to recognize this product, which is being offered to all Tennessee Pride retail customers.
