But the prohibition against eating blood was not a matter of the Law initially.
God says to Noah here, after the Flood.....
Genesis 9:3-5 3 Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything. 4But you shall not eat flesh with its life, that is, its blood. 5And for your lifeblood I will require a reckoning: from every beast I will require it and from man. From his fellow man I will require a reckoning for the life of man.
The prohibition against eating blood predates the Law.
Yes, it was reiterated again in the Law and was a sin. Whoever ate blood was to be cut off from his people (Israel).
But the eating of blood restriction goes back as far as possible.
So, even if the *church fathers* were able to pass judgment and officially rescind the obligation to keep the Law, since its was only purpose was to lead us to Christ to begin with, they had no authority to rescind the prohibition against eating blood, which was given outside the Law.

Oh sure, that's why good German Lutherans and Spanish Catholics make really tasty blood sausages. :)

Maybe for that reason it lasted longer. Now it is gone. Enjoy the blood sausage.
