Tips

  • How long do frozen breaded fish sticks last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep breaded fish sticks frozen at all times.
  • Properly stored, frozen breaded fish sticks will maintain best quality for about 18 months in the freezer, although they will usually remain safe to eat after that.
  • Are frozen breaded fish sticks safe to eat after the ‘expiration’ date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially frozen breaded fish sticks will typically carry a Best By, Best if Used By, Best Before, or Best When Used By date but this is not a safety date, it is the manufacturer's estimate of how long the frozen breaded fish sticks will remain at peak quality.
  • How long will frozen breaded fish sticks remain safe to eat? Frozen breaded fish sticks that have been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely, as long as they have been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
  • How to tell if frozen breaded fish sticks are no longer good? If dry spots or discolorations have developed on the frozen breaded fish sticks, freezer burn has begun to set in - this will not make the frozen breaded fish sticks unsafe to eat, but it will harm the texture and taste.
