The storage times above are only guidelines to go by. Always buy food with the longest expiration date and use the date as part of any storage plan. Each food item should be examined carefully for freezer burn or any other abnormality before use. Always use older items first to rotate the food in your freezer. Be sure to store food in airtight containers to help preserve freshness for the maximum time possible.
