Tips

  • Keep refrigerated and tightly covered.
  • If cheese slices develop an off odor, flavor or appearance, they should be discarded for quality purposes.
  • To freeze: wrap cheese slices tightly in heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap or place in heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • Frozen cheese may become crumbly and lose some of its flavor; the thawed cheese will be best suited to cooked dishes, such as sauces, soups and casseroles.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only - foods kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely.
