PostSubject: Advice on frozen food   Wed Dec 09, 2009 3:15 pm

I ordered some frozen food from the web (lobster eggs and cyclops). Rather naively I assumed it would be sent guarranteed next day delivery - it wasn't it was sent first class, posted on monday and only received today. So needless to say it has completely thawed out.

I guess in this weather it is unlikely to have gotten heated up, do you think it would be ok just to refreeze? Of course I keep telling myself that fish have no problems eating dead fish and I'm sure not all food is that fresh in the wild so this shouldn't be a problem!!

Don't shoot me for saying this but I have a greedy angel fish who will eat directly out of a pippette, so I though I might just feed him some first and wait a couple of days and see if he is ok before general use, unless you guys tell me that it should be thrown out??? It cost too much money to just throw out if it doesn't need to be!

Long answer short: Would you eat a frozen chicken that has been thawed then refrozen?

Hmmm..........not necessarily a good analogy - I used to do it all the time when I was a student - money was tight!!

As soon as food start to thaw out it starts to develope bacterias on it , a whole chook is probably an extreme example because it will hold its temp a lot better than a small packet of lobster eggs, if you think they have been thawed for more than 24 hours-- thats 24 hours for bacteria to grow on it .
I wouldn't feed it to my fish even if it cost quite a bit-- that's me personally.

Hey did they get back to you regardin the frozen food??

I think our bodies would be able to with stand a little bacteria, but a small plec or bn body wouldn't be a good idea to test it. :flower:

The manager of a local suppliers advised us to only buy irradiated frozen foods, that way they can safely be refrozen. Hence we buy BIG blocks of frozen bloodworm, semi defrost it to split into portions, and then refreeze.
