    Is it okay to freeze individually packaged string cheese?

    I'm less concerned about what it does to the taste of the cheese, and more concerned about the safety of freezing the cheese with the plastic. I heard that there are certain plastics that should not be frozen, which is why I'm concerned.

    If I had the name of the plastic being used, I'd probably be able to search for its safety online. However, the manufacturer does not list the type of plastic being used.

    I've tried several searches online, but nothing yielded anything useful.

  • Likely Polyethylene / Polyethylene terephthalate

    Despite internet rumors, freezing should be safe.

    Your string cheese will likely be far more 'brittle and crumbly' than 'stringy' after thawing.

  • I froze once string cheese.

    Despite the plastic bag freezing, the cheese tasted as it was, with no changes in its taste.

  • Possible Duplicate: How long can I keep eggs in the refrigerator? I've got some eggs in a carton (regular Grade A eggs) in the refrigerator. The "sell by" date on them is October 2nd. Today is October 19th, so that's about two and a half weeks past. Generally, foods are good for a couple weeks past the sell by date, but how many weeks do I have before they aren't edible (spoil or generally get "the funk"). If I made french toast in the morning and used them, would they be good? I'm more concerned with 100% safety than them being 10% less awesome tasting after a certain time.

Can I frost the cakes tonight and leave them frosted on the counter? If left on the counter do they need to be covered? Would it be better to place the cakes in the refrigerator? Is my best bet to wait until tomorrow before frosting?

The few mentions of safety that I can... are by definition change, which means that something that was safe can become not so.

  • My power went out for about 20 hours today, from 1am to 9pm. I'm wondering if the food in my refrigerator and freezer are spoiled. Here's some info: High temperature was about 100F outside, but only reached 90F inside. Fridge and freezer had no power the whole time, but I didn't open them at all while the power was out. The items I'd be concerned about: Fridge: Milk (opened), eggs, cheese (pre-packaged, but opened), bacon (opened) Freezer: sausage, ground beef Actually, the ground beef stayed frozen, but the sausages are now soft. Left to my own accord, I'm inclined not to throw

  • I made a batch of cherry ice cream last night and for some reason it seems to taste like I have used cherry flavouring/syrup rather than the actual cherries which were used instead. The cherries themselves had been frozen / defrosted before being added to the custard base, which I wouldn't have thought would make a difference (but maybe it does), but apart from that I'm a bit baffled as to why this has happened? edit Cherries went into the freezer fully ripe and tasting delicious - they were unpitted and frozen in one whole batch (not separated out as you might do with say blackberries)

  • there is no biological hazard with them: any virus or bacteria in the pallets, or bugs in logs will definitely be destroyed by the fire temperature (over 800C/1,500F). What I'm concerned about is: I don't know...I have recently made a brick wood fired oven. It's a black / dirt / Roman / traditional type of oven: where you burn the fuel (typically wood) in the same chamber where you put the food to be cooked... (or ashes) out. Wait till the temperature drops down to the dish's required one, and put the food in. As for fuel, I use wood from pallets or wood logs from prunings (which gardeners are willing to give
