A sausage is a food usually made from ground meat with a skin around it, so beef sausages are stuffed with only beef. Typically, a sausage is formed in a casing traditionally made from intestine, but sometimes synthetic (Wikipedia, nd).

Allergy Alert:

An allergic reaction to beef sausage may occur if the person is allergic to anything it is made with, including, but not limited to: beef, natural casing, fillers in the product, and soy. Mild to severe allergic reactions may occur, and if they happen, you should seek medical attention.

Common Uses:

Sausage making is a traditional food preservation technique. Sausages may be preserved by curing, drying, or smoking. They can be eaten by themselves or mixed into a food dish (Wikipedia, nd).
