Freezer mis-hap- is this okay to eat?

Rate this topic

12 posts in this topic

Apparently I put too much fish powder in this container and when it froze a couple weeks ago the lid popped off. 

It's probably been sitting in the freezer w/ the lid off for two or three weeks, since I first froze it. It's in the fridge thawing now.

Is it safe to eat? I hate to waste food, but hate getting sick more.

Thanks in advance.

I agree with richie.  IMO it'd be unlikely to make you sick just might have texture issues due to freezer burn.  If it were me I'd probably try to free it from the container while still frozen & saw off the top layer w/a serrated knife then eat the rest.

Not dangerous, just not optimal.

When it was filled, there wasn't enough room for expansion.

You love to cook and you make alot. If you don't

already have one, a vacuum seal thingy with rolls of bags would be

a good move. We use ours' quite a bit.

Yes I have one. Never thought of using for soup.

I think there's an attachment for specialized canisters. 

I should look into it.

Jim:  when I fill containers like you used in the picture, I always leave at least a 3/4 of an inch from the top of the container.  Before I put the lid on I place a piece of Saran Wrap right on top of the contents so there is no air in contact with the contents.  This prevents freezer burn.  I also tape the lids.

If it is still frozen use a paring knife and just scrap of the top part.

 

This happens to me often (well, not often, but once in awhile). Never had an issue from it, and at times it was for a whole lot longer than a couple weeks.
