In Michigan, it is legal for a licensed wild game processor to mix wild game from more than one customer for products that are ground (i.e. sausages, snack sticks, etc.).

If products such as sausage are made from more than one customer's wild game, packages must contain this statement: "Made from multiple wild game sources that did not receive whole carcass examination by a licensed food establishment." https://www.michigan.gov/documents/mdard/Wild_Game_Sausage_Processing_478615_7.pdf
