Yes, you can.
#2
Yes, but when you defrost it, make sure it is eaten the same day.
#3
make sure it hasn't previously been frozen, you could always cook it then freeze it if your worried

As above: yes you can freeze it provided it hasnt been frozen already..check the details on wrapper, use within 1 month, defrost in fridge overnight and use that day. I buy loads of fresh meat reduced as it's use by date is that day, I then freeze it...saves me loads of cash and we get top quality cuts for 1/4 of their original purchase price.

Yes - if in doubt give it a "sniff"
#6
I wouldn't risk it.

Get it down your neck

Not a good idea meat should be frozen on day of purchase
#8
I did it on one occasion before and my two kids Sam and Ella ended up not well.
#9
My freezer full of reduced chicken
#10
Yes.

As with any frozen food when it is eventually cooked make sure it is piping hot in the middle especially chicken and pork.
#11
By the time it defrosted it would be ood surely? I hate it when the OH tries freezing food on the day it's going out of date! :')

Been freezing reduced price food for at least twenty years with no problems at all, the use by dates tend to be very conservative....

I actually found on the above site that you CAN cook food from frozen, something I always thought was a no no...

The Food Standards Agency provides sensible advice and tips here: https://www.food.gov.uk/science/microbiology/use-by-and-best-before-dates.
I hope this helps clear up some of the confusion.

just freeze it use by date isn't a majic bullet that if u go over 12 clock the thing has to be thrown away smell it if it's good enough today it will be good enough to use after aswell.

Just freeze it and as said these date things are just to cover themselves.

LoL. A grammatically correct bore though. :D
#22
I'd just cook it all and have it for lunches etc
#23
It smelt weird even though it was today's date so threw it out
#24
wash it then pat it dry before quick freezing
#25
I buy a load of tesco reduced for the purpose of freezing same day.
Stock up on sausages and haddock fishcakes.

It was rhetorical lol

The whole "freeze on day of purchase" line is nonsense
#27
just wondered what idiots downvote those who say you cannot freeze multiple times. someone needs to redo their food safety
