How long can meat be frozen before it goes bad?


Meats can be frozen for up to one year, depending on the type and cut. For example, steaks can be frozen for six to 12 months, while chops can be frozen for four to six months.

Roasts can be frozen for four to 12 months, and hamburger and other ground meats can be frozen for three to four months. Hot dogs and luncheon meats keep in the freezer for one to two months, and bacon can be frozen for about one month. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, these time frames have been established for food quality only, as frozen foods are safe to eat indefinitely.
