As students, parents and caretakers adjust to a physical return to classrooms this fall, the USDA has issued a reminder about handling frozen foods safely. When it comes to packing lunches, preparing after-school snacks, or quick, convenient dinners between after-school activities, frozen foods – especially not-ready-to-eat frozen chicken products – are a popular option. However, K-State Research and Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter says there are food safety concerns to be aware of and that checking the product instructions on the package is the first step in safely preparing frozen foods.
