Because of how natural our deli meats are, it can be difficult to peel the slices apart cleanly. One little trick is to peel 2 or 3 slices apart from the stack as one piece, then remove the individual slices from there. Please know that we are continuously working to improve the product and appreciate your feedback and suggestions.

Let’s start with nitrites. Our products contain only naturally occurring nitrites such as those found in celery as a result of photosynthesis. No synthetic nitrites are added.

Our products are gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, and wheat-free. That said, they’re made in a facility that does use those ingredients in other products and they do share the same production line. While all equipment is thoroughly washed before making our product and our meats have always tested negative for traces of these ingredients, people with severe sensitivities should be aware of the process.

Finally, our products have no MSG. Read more information on our clean ingredient practices.

Yes, all of our sausages and hot dogs are fully cooked. Just heat, serve and enjoy!

The Organic Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage sold at Costco is formed, cooked, and kept in a natural pork casing. This traditional style of sausage making gives the product a delicious, snappy bite. The Organic Sweet Italian Chicken Sausages sold at any other retailer will not have a casing.

Nearly all of our hot dogs and sausages are skinless, so no animal casing is used. They are formed and cooked in a cellulose casing, which is removed after cooking. Our Pasture Raised Uncured Beef Hot Dog is in a sheep casing.

Our chefs spent countless hours experimenting with and fine-tuning the recipe for our hot dogs. We added as little sugar as possible to get the robust flavor.
