SANTA MONICA, CALIF. — Full Moon, a brand by Perdue Farms, announced March 4 the launch of its latest human-grade pet nutrition product: Artisanal Sausage Slices. According to the company, these new responsibly sourced dog treats aim to give canine companions “the deli experience they deserve.”

Artisanal Sausage Slices are geared toward pet owners who seek high-quality foods for themselves and, by extension, for their pets. The treats are formulated with fruits and vegetables that provide antioxidants, as well as premium animal proteins, all of which are 100% human-grade.

Ingredients for the treats are sourced from USDA-approved family farms, according to Perdue, giving them a human food-quality smell and taste for tail-wagging family members. All Full Moon formulas, including the new Artisanal Sausage Slices line, are free from corn, wheat, soy, glycerin, other fillers, and artificial preservatives, colors and flavors.

“We know that using whole, real ingredients provide the best taste and quality possible for our pets,” said Ryan Perdue, founder of Full Moon Pet and fourth-generation Perdue family member. “With our new Artisanal line, we’re bringing the ‘fresh from the deli’ experience with soft and smoky sausage slices prepared with antioxidant-rich fruit and vegetable inclusions that are a perfect bite for small and bigger dogs alike.”

The new line includes Chicken Apple Sausages and Turkey Cranberry Sausages. The Chicken Apple recipe combines bits of apple with cage-free chicken, and the Turkey Cranberry formula includes whole cranberries and sweet potato pieces. Both recipes are intended to deliver a sweet and savory treating experience, and visual inclusions in each sausage slice add to the premium look of the treats.

Full Moon will sell its Artisanal Sausages Slices in 12-oz packages through Albertson’s, HEB, Hannaford, Food Lion and Amazon, as well as direct-to-consumer through
