Storing Frozen Foods

When shopping for frozen foods choose:
• Frozen foods last so they will stay frozen until
stored at home.
• Frozen foods solidly frozen in the store without
ice crystals on the outside of the packaging and
loose-type foods like peas that are still loose in
their package. This is an indication they have
been kept properly frozen.

procedure. Foods needs to have been kept at 40°

and then frozen for later use.

Remember:
 Where we store foods at home is the same
way we found them in the grocery store!
 If you found it on a shelf, you can store it on a
shelf.
 If you pulled it from a refrigerated case, you
must refrigerate it promptly at home.
 If you found it in the frozen case, freeze it at
home.
