Refreezing thawed, frozen cooked whelks?
I bought some frozen cooked whelks, defrosted them at room temperature but only ate half of them.
Then I immediately put the remaining ones back in the freezer.
Is it safe to defrost them again and eat them cold?
I don't think so.
I've operated under the assumption that once thawed, it has to be consumed or cooked before refreezing. A few years ago someone posted a link to the USFDA website where it said that as long as whatever was thawed and remained cold (in a fridge) it was okay to refreeze. I now use this guideline.
Thanks for the reply. :)
Yeah that's the problem, I defrosted the bloody things at room temperature.
My original plan was to eat the whole bag but once again my eye's were bigger than my belly. :P
