  * Pork to be consumed raw, as in dried sausage, can be made
  completely safe and free of trichinae by freezing it to -20 F for six
  to twelve days. -10 F for ten to twenty days or 5 F for twenty to
  thirty days. These guidelines have been set by the USDA for
  commercial packers and are perfectly safe if followed by the home
  sausage maker.
  If you can't or don't wish to tie up freezer space to treat your own
  sausage meat, you can ask your butcher to order you some "certified"
  pork. Certified pork has been frozen to render it trichinosis free
  and comes stamped or labeled as such.  Make sure you see the stamp or
