Quick Answers

 

 

Is it necessary to rewrap meats purchased at the grocery store before freezing?


Purchased meats should be rewrapped before freezing to protect from freezer burn. The original packaging material is not moisture-vapor-proof.

 

Note: If you do not rewrap meat, use it within 2 weeks.
