- How long do frozen veal chops last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep veal chops frozen at all times.
Properly stored, frozen veal chops will maintain best quality for about 6 months in the freezer, although they will usually remain safe to eat after that.
Are frozen veal chops safe to eat after the ‘expiration’ date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially frozen veal chops 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 veal chops will remain at peak quality.
How long will frozen veal chops remain safe to eat? Frozen veal chops 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 veal chops are no longer good? If dry spots or discolorations have developed on the frozen veal chops, freezer burn has begun to set in - this will not make the frozen veal chops unsafe to eat, but it will harm the texture and taste.
