    would you eat it?

    I've got a cannelloni in the freezer been there since god knows when but was frozen as soon as I bought it. It has a best before date of 15/07/16.

    Do you guys reckon it's safe to eat? It'll be nuked in the microwave and it's been stored frozen since bought!

    Yeh it's been frozen since I purchased it. wasn't In the fridge or anything

    Just think of the regret when you're throwing up all weekend. It's not worth it!

    Of course it's safe. Don't listen to the idiot's. Christ what's a freezer for?

    The Cold, Hard Facts About Frozen Food. Items from the freezer section of the supermarket are safe to eat indefinitely. They have expiration dates because they won't taste good forever; flavor and texture break down over time and because the package is exposed to air when you open and shut the freezer door.

    I'd eat it!

    Go for it! Just make sure you have plenty of loo roll stocked.

    You can freeze meat for a long time and it will still be safe to eat, but … You can freeze meat for a long time and it will still be safe to eat, but the quality will deteriorate so it's best to eat it within three to six months.Don't worry if it's frozen for longer – try marinating it before cooking to improve texture or use herbs and spices to add flavour.

    As long as it has been in a freezer and not defrosted I don't see why not

    It'd be a great technique to shift a stone quick!

    I'm just going to eat it. It's been frozen and it's a best before not use by. I'll put it in for a little longer to cook n give it a good smell before hand.

    Definitley fine. Im stil eating salmon from january its fine freezer is basically a pause button. If it made you ill itd be something done wrong before freezing or whilst cooking

    I have frozen somosas that I eat for far longer and its good.

    Can you let us know how you get on just so we know (if still alive)

    If its been frozen it will be fine ,for another year at least . I presume some of the previous daft answers were due to folks not reading your question fully

    Also, your avi was really confusing at a quick glance compared to mine haha!

    I'd definitely eat it! Good for the ol' immune system.

    Yesterday I went to cook some eggs, got 2 in the pan and went and cracked open the third, some grey rotten thing dropped out and it smelt like death. Turns out the eggs expired back in October. X)

    And I ate 3 eggs from the same box a few days earlier! oO

    Oh god!! haha!! I always do the water test with eggs to see if they sink! Never had that though!oO

    Someone thawed a wholly mammoth and ate its meat a few years ago.

    You'll be fine.

    Eaten out of date food all my life (70s) never had a prob.

    Chicken I cooked on Tuesday I froze a year ago . I'm still alive .

    Before dates we used common sense & a nifty nose.

    people eat yoghurts... yes they are basically out of date milk.... dont see anyone complaining.
    same goes for cheese

    Penicillin rarely kills anyone.

    Old food cannot harm you, only if it has become contaminated.
    And a best before date is often a taste test by marketers. Not if it's actually unsafe

    Age might increase the likelihood of contamination. Not in a freezer though.

    I would have no problem eating it well past the best before. however if you ask my Mrs she won't eat anything a day before that date. sigh
