  • Unless you see any mold on it or anything like this, just smell it and taste it if it taste ok, I would not worry too much about expiration dates, use your judgement...

  • Was is frozen BEFORE the expiration date? If so, it's probably fine, as long as you eat it in the next day or two.

  • If it was frozen before the expiration date it'll be fine just be sure you finish it within the week

  • If meat was frozen before it expired. Then thawed out, it is ok. I do it with regular meat all the time.

  • How long has it been frozen? Was it expired when you froze it? If it wasn't expired when frozen and it has been in the freezer for a few months or less, it's probably fine.

  • If you froze it before it expired, it should be fine, but I'd eat it quickly. If you froze it after the expiration date, you could thaw it and sniff it, maybe take a very small taste to see if it tastes funky. But if you froze it after it expired, I probably wouldn't risk it.
