10 Things in Your Freezer You Should Toss Out

Expired Frozen Foods - Check the expiration dates on all your frozen goods. Foods that have been in the freezer past their expiration date may not be safe to eat and could lose their taste and texture.

Freezer Burned Items - Foods with freezer burn appear dry and are covered in ice crystals.

Old Leftovers - If you can't remember when you froze them or if they've been there for more than three months, it's time to let them go. Old leftovers can become a safety risk and might not taste as good.

Unidentifiable Foods - If you can't recognize the food item or don't remember what it is due to frost or lack of labeling, it's safer to discard it.

Ice Cream with Ice Crystals - Ice cream that has developed ice crystals on the surface has likely been subject to freezer burn or temperature fluctuations, affecting its flavor and texture.

Frozen Fruits and Vegetables that Have Become Soggy - Once thawed, if your frozen fruits and vegetables are soggy or have lost their color

Raw Meat That's Been Frozen Too Long - While freezing can extend the life of meats, keeping them frozen for too long (beyond their recommended freezer storage time) can degrade their quality and flavor.

Opened Packs of Frozen Food That Have Been Forgotten - Partially used bags of veggies, fries, etc., that have been open for a long time can suffer from freezer burn and clumping.

Damaged Packaging - Foods with torn or open packaging can be exposed to freezer burn and contamination. It's best to discard them to avoid any health risks.

Anything with a Strange Odor - If something in your freezer smells off, it's a sign that it's gone bad or has absorbed odors from other foods in the freezer, which can affect its taste and safety.
