  • 6 months but it needs to be used within a week of being thawed

  • Products are guaranteed (if kept frozen) for 2 years past the manufacture date but once unfrozen it needs to be used within 2-3 days

  • Frozen milk actually lasts longer than milk that hasn't been frozen. Write the date you freeze it on the jug. When you defrost it, you have one week, plus the time difference between the date you wrote and the expiration date on the milk (so if you froze it today, had a sell by date of Jan 3, you'd have 2 weeks once it comes out of the freezer). Chances are it still will be ok after that 2 weeks, but figure you'll get at least that. Per the USDA, it can be frozen indefinitely.
