As long as the sausage has been properly stored in the freezer the sausage can be okay to eat for up to a year or more past it's use by date.

The use by date on meat is just a general guideline for freshness and doesn't always mean that the meat is bad to eat past the use by date.

You can keep the sausage in the freezer for 6 months to a year before it starts to lose it's freshness but it will still be safe to eat as long as it's been frozen.

After a few weeks past it's use by date then the sausage may not taste as good as it would when fresh but it's still safe to eat it as long as you keep it frozen.
