Abstract

In the nineteenth century, the sausage had an important role in urban diets and in debates about diseased meat. The sausage came to symbolize the dangers of diseased meat, the anxieties that surrounded questions of food safety, and the growing debate about the risks posed by diseased animals to man. This article explores the material culture of the sausage to ask questions about the nature of food consumption and the relationship between meat and quality in Victorian and Edwardian Britain.
