    No it's not.

    Haggis is a dish containing sheep's 'pluck' (heart, liver and lungs), minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, and traditionally simmered in the animal's stomach for approximately three hours.
    Note 'traditionally'. Commercially bought haggis is generally encased in plastic, not intestines. You can get veggie haggis, too.

    At what point does "food" become "poo"? Stomach, throat, anus? There are bacteria, and there is digestion from the moment the "food" enters the mouth....
