We do… but they’re processed sausages as well. They are one of the better grocery store options, but still nothing like you’d get from a butcher. We just don’t have a large enough Italian population for butchers here to make it, although I can get every kind of Polish sausage you could ever hope to eat.
The thing is, all formed meat, regardless of who makes it, is processed. Unless it’s an actual cut of meat like a steak, it’s processed. Ground. Shaped. Processed meat doesn’t have to mean hot dogs… it covers any meat that is sold in a different form or shape than it came from the animal. And actually, since deer processing is a huge business here, I’d have to say even steaks are “processed” meat. [;)]
