MADISON, Tenn. – Odom's Tennessee Pride has a new line of premium sausage patties, featuring two healthier options — Turkey and Reduced Sodium. The turkey sausages have 60 percent less fat, while the reduced-sodium patties feature 40 percent less sodium. Neither product contains MSG.

The new line offers three varieties: Mild, Maple and Spicy. The patties come in an 8-count package. Products are available in the frozen meat section of various grocery stores, including Hy-Vee, Kroger, Piggly Wiggly and Publix. The suggested retail price is $3.99 for the new premium sausage patties.
