Caritas Italy claims sausage record

Italy snatched the record for the production of the world’s longest sausage when a team of pork butchers crafted a 600 meter sausage for a Caritas fundraiser.

Alberto Della Pelle from Penne, a small town in central Italy, helped by nine colleagues, created a sausage 597.8m long in the main street, the Straits Times reports citing Ansa.

The sausage will be sliced to fill 6,000 sandwiches which will be sold to raise funds for the charity Caritas.
