THREE MORE SAUSAGE NAMES ATTAIN PROTECTED STATUS

The Official Journal of the European Commission records in Commission Regulation 2206/2003 that the names of three German sausages have been elevated to the status of protected geographical indications. The lucky three are THÜRINGER LEBERWURST (Thuringian Liver Sausage), THÜRINGER ROTWURST (Thuringian Red Sausage) and THÜRINGER ROSTBRATWURST (Thuringian Rib Steak Sausage). Trifle with these sausages at your peril, for their appellations are now protected by Council Regulation 2081/92. And don’t dare feed them to your dogs, since the Annex to the Regulation 2206/2003 stipulates that the all three delicacies are intended for human consumption.
