Is my meat bad? (update)

Okay so I bought meat froze it. It was before the sell date. It's italian sausage I've never cooked it before. It smells different. Not so much a spoiled smell but different. I'm scared to cook it now. Help.

 

So I could eat it... It's in my head I don't want to get sick so me and my Los ate cereal lol dh said it smells fine and ate it so I'll let youguys  know if he gets sick and dies lol

  • As long as you froze it by the sell day date it's fine. It's going to smell different due to all of the seasoning they add to the pork.

  • It's fine. I weird myself out about meat smelling different after being frozen, too. I'm sure if it wasn't past due when you froze it and it's only been a week, it's totally fine.

  • It has seasoning in it if it is Italian sausage? That might be the reason.

  • Is it the brand/ style you usually buy?
    If it is a different brand that could account for it. What I do is start the cooking process and if it smells bad or "off" I chuck it. Better safe than sorry.
    If you froze it before the expiration date and thawed it in the refridgerator it should be fine.

  • Personally, sausage and ground meat are two things I won't ever freeze because of the risk of contamination (the smaller the pieces of meat the greater the potential surface for infection ...)

  • Italian sausage has a funky smell and taste. I can't stand it because of the smell.
