BARTLETT, ILLINOIS -- I have purchased this product for many years and absolutely love the quality and taste of this product. SAMs Club now only carries the non-spicy version! Please bring back the Spicy version.

Whoever decided to discontinue this product knows nothing about southern cooking and can only be a complete moron
Jackie Black on 04/22/2013:
I had been buying Cavanaugh spicy smoke sausage for a while then all at once Sam's stopped carrying it. What bothers me, they never give the reason that they stopped and that's what they always do when they stop carrying an item. Shame on you Sam's.
Tim Gleason on 05/21/2013:
the problem with sams is that the buyers stop buying things I want the spicey sausage back, tones citrus grill, and large suts of still shows as of today that sams carries the Cavanaugh spicey sausage which is so false
Sharon on 06/03/2013:
Bring back the spicy sausage!! The regular is too boring and I need the spicy for my summer grilling and seafood boils!!
Dano on 06/08/2013:
Please bring back the Cavanaugh Spicy Smoke Sausage to Sam's. There is no substitute for them. Please bring them back immediately. Thanks
Joe on 06/09/2013:
I agree. Why would you drop a popular product like this. The regular is terrible, and I haven't found a substitute yet. Sams, please bring back this spicy sausage. Does anyone know where we can get it some place else?
Donna on 06/13/2013:
our entire family is soooo, disappointed that we can not find the spicy sausage. I have used it for all my gumbo and creole recipes, as well as many other pasta dishes and grilling too! I was told by one SAM's Club that it was a seasonal item. I am not sure which season they were referring to.
Diane on 06/16/2013:
Yes I agree bring back the spicy sausage to Sam's. We bought it so we could grill it with some potatoes and onions. I miss that so much. Where can we buy it if not at Sam's.
Travis on 07/01/2013:
I too am wondering why SAMs dropped this product. Some of us love spicy sausages. This was a huge blunder, please bring them back NOW !

Roger Alexander on 07/02/2013:
I too have purchased this sausage over the years and love it. I am truly going to miss it. I have tried to find the company's website in hopes of contacting them. In doing so, I have found at least one other website that stated that the sausage is not available. I wonder if the company is out of business...I would like a recommendation for a sausage that is as good as the Cavanaugh's or at least tolerable. I have not tried anything that is as good anyway. I would be willing to mail order the Cavanaugh's sausage by the case even.
Phyllis C. on 07/05/2013:
We love Cavanaugh's Spicy Sausage, but cannot get it at Sam's Club any longer. What a mistake Sam's Club has made. They carry the other favors of Cavanaugh's. Why discontinue this popular favor? Who ever the buyer for Sam's Club is, they fell down on the job.

Everyone, please write to the following:
They are the distributers for Cavanaugh Spicy Smoked Sausage and they decided to stop distributing to Sam's Club. I have already alerted them to just how many people they have angered but if everyone writes to them to complain, we can turn this around and maybe they will bring back our beloved sausage to Sam's Club once again.
Sherry on 07/23/2013:
I too would love to see Sam's start carrying the spicy sausage again! We love it. I have asked at my local Sams but still not seeing it! Please bring it back to NE!
Linda on 07/28/2013:
We also love Cavanaugh spicy sausage and wish Sam's Club would start carrying it again. Please bring it back. We are now buying it from Prince Wholesale Foods (online).
Anoni on 08/01/2013:
Well, now the Cavanaugh regular sausage is gone and the butchers don't know why. They have a cheddar cheese stuffed Cavanaugh sausage but why mess with a good stuff!! Bring it back.
Bob on 08/01/2013:
Sam's in Rochester, NY claim they can't order the spicy sausage product as it isn't on the option list.
Donna Worthy on 08/04/2013:
I'd like Sam's Club to please bring back the spicy smoked Cavanaugh Sausages to their North Little Rock, AR location and they plain smoked sausage! They only have the gluten free. They say that the demand for the spicy n smoked is not there!

If they won't bring them back, someone please tell me where I can order them.
Ruby on 08/15/2013:
Please bring back my spicy. I have been eating it for years and introduced to family members at our family reunion. They loved it too.
Julie on 09/01/2013:
I contacted the manufacturer awhile back and this item has been discontinued in their product line. It's one of those items that was made by a company bought out by another company and they bought out by another. I'm sure the sales dollars at Sam's for this one particular item did not make it cost effective to produce. You need items to be in multiple markets (not just club stores) to make it a profit item to continue producing.
David Crafton on 09/03/2013:
I have also used the spicy sausage in my shrimp boils, crab stew, and several other dishes. Where can it be purchased. Why not bring it back if what I hear is true about being discontinued. What a shame. regular sausage is B O R I N G G G G
Tami on 09/10/2013:
I have asked at the Sam's in Jackson Michigan numerous times and they tell me it is not available to order also. Our potatoe soup just isn't the same without the Cavanaugh spicy sausage. (((Come on Sam's bring it back)))
Michael on 09/30/2013:
Cavanaugh Spicy was the best. Apparently Sams wants us to settle for an inferior brand. I guess we know what they think of us as "members."
john evans on 10/12/2013:
I to went to sams club looking for Cavanaugh spicy sausage and I was tol it has been discontinued as gomer pyle would say shame shame shame on you walmart a super blunder here I tried the polks good but not as good as the Cavanaugh/s brand them back please.
Burrel Wilburn on 11/12/2013:
Where can I buy the spicy sausage ?
GFC on 11/19/2013:
Ditto- So upset about the deletion of the Spicy version. It was the best. They do this all the time. I can list at least 5 things that they have discontinued that I specifically went to Sam's to buy. Very disappointed.
claudette wallace on 11/20/2013:
I am so upset with cavannaugh powers that be for this dumb decision the spicy sausage is the best ever made I have been using this product for years first time I tasted it at a same store demo in new orleans thought I had died and gone to heaven when I moved to fort worth after katrina and found it at sams here now you all are messing with my holiday menus there is no substitute for this product in this world my gumbo jambalaya stewed corn spaghetti sauce and I could go on and on for my use of this product shame on you for this decision
Jean Dumas on 12/12/2013:
I have been buying Cavanaugh Spicy Smoke Sausage for many years from Sam's Club. I went to three local Sam's stores looking for it before I was told by an associate that they no longer carry it. She could not give me a reason. I ended up buying the non-spicy one they do carry. This was a big mistake that I will not make again as it was just the run of the mill bland smoked sausage. The spicy one was/is exceptional. Sam's Club needs to rethink their decision and listen to their customers and bring this item back immediately.
Phil's Pig Out BBQ on 12/14/2013:
We have been buying Cavanaugh's spicy sausage for over 8 yrs. Sam's stopped carrying it for a short time a couple of years ago then got it back in. This time it looks like it is gone for good. Sam's like to think of themselves as in business for the small business, but when it comes to Meat products you never know what brand they will have. Cavanaugh has changed the packaging and the quantity several times over the years which really irritates me. The keep putting fewer and fewer sausages in the package. They are down to 5 in pack now. There used to be 7 per pkg. I hope the dopy Sam's buyers wake up and find some spicy sausage, and get back to buying IBP meat.
Danica on 12/17/2013:
OMG!!! - I can't believe there are so many of you that feel the same way as I do!! I love Cavanaugh's spicy sausage and keep looking for it, but can't find it anywhere!! My gumbo is not the same without it!!!
Jim on 01/10/2014:
I also loved the spicy sausage. I used it when I made my Jambalaya. Also very good by itself or on a sandwich. Can't believe they discontinued this product. I left a comment about the product on the Sam's Club site and received a message back that the product was discontinued because of poor sales. I can't believe that I was buying an couple of packages every 2 or 3 weeks. And we can see how many people have left comments on this page.
Yankee on 01/21/2014:
I had only discovered the Cavanaugh Spicy smoked sausage @ Sam's Club shortly before it was discontinued, and thought I had found "The Holy Grail". I can't tell you how disappointed I was when it was discontinued. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring back this wonderful product, Sam's.
Gastronater on 02/08/2014:
Cavanaugh Spicy Sausage, grilled over charcoal with grilled onions and peppers w/spicy mustard and/or BBQ sauce! Why would you deny us this exquisite treat?? Are ya daft?
Vangsnes on 02/27/2014:
I drove 30 miles to Sam's Club this morning just to find out they do not carry the Cavanaugh spicy sausage. The last time I went to Sam's I had to buy the regular Cavanaugh Smoked Sausage I just thought they were out at the time. I will by writing Tyson in just a moment. 30 miles Really
Melissa Brown on 03/02/2014:
I join the ranks of all the complaints before mine. I have been looking for the spicy sausage at SAMs for a year now! The other product that they carry does not compare at all!!!! My family loves this spicy sausage and want it back at SAMs!!!!
Craig Dukes on 03/07/2014:
I concur with all comments posted, however Sam's needs to bring back all Cavanaugh Sausages, NOT Just the spicy. My family loves the Cheddar Cheese sausages with Cajun potatoes as well as the spicy for Jambalaya.PLEASE BRING THEM BACK!!! Or tell us how we can buy them direct over the internet and have them shipped directly to me!!
Overstreet on 03/19/2014:
I live in the Atlanta area and all the Sam here have stopped carrying the Cavanaugh please let me know who have them...Please or where and how I can get them...
Edith Jones on 04/16/2014:
I agree with Alsland. Sam's should bring back the HOT SAUSAGE!! It was a staple in my frig. I live in New Orleans where we have a wide variety of sausages. I have not been able to find a hot sausage that I enjoy as much as I did Cavanaugh's Hot Sausage. I so miss my sausage.

It Is Not As Good As It Was The Last Time
Posted by on
I enjoyed it in the past but now I also found the casing tough, further, it has 1% sugar(!) in the meat. Therefore the spicy lost somehow. Unfortunately the whole product lost its edge. I am sorry. I like it hot and bold. Don't feed us sugar!

I know it is cheaper than the meat itself, but I don't like it this way.

We had some turkey sausage last night in one of our recipes last night, aside from a little dry it was flavored well.

I loved the Cavanaugh sausage you use to carry. At first when i didn't see it i drove 50Miles to another Sam's and they didn't have it either. I was told it no longer available. Its the only sausage my family eats. We tried your substitute (polks) but it's not to my liken. PLEASE,PLEASE bring Cavanaugh back . I drive miles to het it.
Lanna Watson on 06/23/2014:
