Agriculture
in Home and Garden Bulletin No. 69 says:
'L** _ You may safely refreeze frozen foods that have
thawed
if they still contain ice crystals or if they are
still cold--below
40°F
'L_,.Thawed ground meats, poultry
or fish that have
any off-odor or off-color should not be refrozen and
should not be eaten, Thawed ice cream should be
discarded° If the odor or color of any food is poor
or questionable, get rid of it, The food may be
dangerous to eat,
"Even partial
thawing
and refreezing
reduce the
eating quality
of foods, particularly fruits, vegetables
and prepared foods, The eating quality of red meats
is affected tess than that of many other foods° Use
refrozen foods as soon as possible to save as much
of their eating quality as you can:'
* If your
old refrigerator
is still around
the
house but not in use, be sure to remove
the
doors. This will reduce the possibility of danger
to children.
