  • Foods in the freezer, is it safe to eat?

    With frozen foods, sometimes it’s more a question of quality than safety.  Food and Health Communications reminds us, when it comes to freezer burn, the problem is more of a quality issue.  While safe to eat, the quality of freezer burned food may be poor.

    The safety of food in a freezer is always based on if the freezer has been kept at zero degrees or below. If there has been a power outage and/or the food has reached a temperature over 40 degrees at any time while in the freezer, the safety of the food may be in question.
