  • Your favorite retail grocer where you purchased Swaggerty's Farm pork sausage products can typically help you with this since they are part of the equation. There are numerous factors and variables from your retail grocer to storage methods in the home.
    In general, and depending on the pork sausage product, you can expect a shelf life of up to to 18 days refrigerated or 180 days when kept frozen. If thawed, the product can be refrozen, yet the quality and wholesomeness are then highly dependent upon consumer storage methods and the condition of the product.
    Our recommendation is to use the same common sense you would use with any fresh or frozen ground red meat product. If color is good (e.g. pinkish, red) and organoleptic is good (i.e. no off colors or odors), the product should be fine to use or refreeze.
    Feel free to contact us anytime at or (865) 933-2625 should you seek additional information.
    If you would like to learn more, read this report by the USDA, Beyond Nutrition and Organic Labels—30 Years of Experience With Intervening in Food Labels.
  • All Swaggerty's Farm retail products have been previously handled frozen for your protection. Refreeze or refrigerate, immediately after purchase. For more information about expiration dates or perishability with Swaggerty's Farm premium pork sausage, you can read about it here.
  • Have you found mold on previously-purchased Swaggerty's Farm sausage? Here are some things you should know about handling premium pork sausage and steps you can take to resolve problems with mold in the future.

    All premium pork sausage products shipped from Swaggerty's Farm in Kodak TN are shipped fresh-made and flash-frozen, before shipping out to retail and food service sellers. All Swaggerty's product remains frozen until product is dropped off at retail or food service distribution points. At the point of transferring product, sellers of Swaggerty's Farm sausage choose to store in Frozen or Refrigerated facilities.

    Any mold found on Swaggerty's Farm sausage after shipment to retail or food service distribution centers stems from only one (1) thing: sausage being stored or transported in fresh/unfrozen states too long in a moist environment. Moisture and temperature-changes can occur at the retailer, in transit to your home, or in a residential or commercial refrigerator. Note: June, July, and August are typically the worst months for mold issues due to product-temperature variability in retail and food service establishments, as well as the various ways in which product is transported and stored for use in Summer months.

    So what are the best steps to resolve my mold issue?

    Since 99.9% of all mold on fresh meat occurs after a product has thawed at the retail or food service establishment in which you shop, in transit to your cold or freezer storage, or in your refrigerator or freezer at home, it's best to contact the retail or wholesale source where you purchased the product to make your claim.

    You'll want to have the following ready when making your claim:

    1. Any/all expiration codes or dates on the package you purchased
    2. When you purchased the product
    3. Where you purchased the product

    *If the retailer or distributor where you purchased our product does not handle your claim to your satisfaction, please Contact Us and ask for the Quality department.

    And as always, feel free to reach out to us at 865-933-2625.

  • If you encounter a problem with your Swaggerty's Farm product you purchased at a retail location near you, consider contacting the retailer if you think the issue may stem from proper handling, cold storage, or expired product to attempt to resolve the issue.
    If you encounter an issue you believe we should know about, please contact us at 1-866-792-4728 and ask to speak to someone in our Quality Department. We really appreciate your feedback and help monitoring our premium sausage products.
  • Premium pork sausage begins with superior food safety and quality control.
