Freezing Food - Is Frozen Food Safe?


Question: Freezing Food - Is Frozen Food Safe?
Answer: Freezing food at zero Fahrenheit slows the movement of molecules, causing microbes to enter a dormant stage. This preserves food for a long time and prevents food spoilage and foodborne illness because it prevents the growth of microorganisms. Food kept frozen at zero Fahrenheit will always be safe, but the quality will suffer with lengthy freezer storage.
