ILiveInFlipFlops Posted November 2, 2012 Share Posted November 2, 2012 (edited) I know that the rule is something like 48 hours in a full freezer. But what if it's been more than 48 hours and the items are still solid? Some things in the freezer (near the top) were softening, like the frozen fruit. But there was a pound of ground beef that was solid, and a strip of vac-packed chicken that was at the bottom that was still solid. Even the individually vac-packed salmon fillets were still solid and clunked together like bricks when I brought them up. Should I go by time, or by state of frozenness? If something was still mostly solid but softening around the edges (the sausages), would you treat it as if it were in the fridge at the point (so, say, 48 hours until spoilage)? We didn't lose much in the fridge, but we stand to lose a few hundred $$ worth of stuff from the freezer *sigh* Still, I'll take that over an insurance deductible and home damage (or worse) any day. Hurricanes stink. Edited November 2, 2012 by Sweet Morning Air Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
