  • Toss it. always use ground beef within 1 day of buying it.

  • Yes as others have said a week is way too long and you don't want to re-freeze it. YUCK! I will take out hamburger out of the freezer if and only if I'm going to use it that night. A rare occasion it may not get used, if that's the case then it's a MUST the next night. As for the first anonymous poster that would be only true if you did not freeze it when you got home.
