GARNER, NC. — Butterball, LLC has added two low-fat turkey sausage options to its product line.

The company’s Hearty Turkey Sausage offerings are precooked, bun-length, gluten-free and contain up to 70% less fat than their pork and beef smoked sausage counterparts. Available in Old World Smoked and Polish style flavors, the sausages come in four-count packages and may be heated to serve using a microwave, grill or skillet.

“The fully cooked smoked sausage category needs some sizzle, and we are going to deliver,” said Michelle Lieszkovszky, leader of new consumer solutions at Butterball. “It's everything that you'd expect from a traditional pork sausage, but with less fat. Retailers can now diversify their meat case selections with turkey sausage links, offering a flavorful and convenient alternative to pork or chicken.”

Butterball’s turkey sausages are now available in select retailers across the United States, with broader distribution expected this fall.

“Consumers expect healthy and delicious tasting turkey products from Butterball,” Ms. Lieszkovszky said. “They'll crave the robust flavor and coarse texture of our Hearty Turkey Sausage.”
