Found a roast in the bottom of the freezer and has a date 12/09. Will it be OK to cook or throw away? Thanks

  • Does it smell? I've cooked meat that's been in the freezer over a year and it was fine - but if it smells off (a sickly sweet-ish smell) it's bad. As long as it's wrapped well meat can last 2 years in the freezer.
