- How long do frozen frog legs last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - keep frog legs frozen at all times.
Properly stored, frozen frog legs will maintain best quality for about 9 months in the freezer, although they will usually remain safe to eat after that.
Are frozen frog legs safe to eat after the ‘expiration’ date on the package? Yes, if properly stored - commercially frozen frog legs 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 frog legs will remain at peak quality.
How long will frozen frog legs remain safe to eat? Frozen frog legs 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 frog legs are no longer good? If dry spots or discolorations have developed on the frozen frog legs, freezer burn has begun to set in - this will not make the frozen frog legs unsafe to eat, but it will harm the texture and taste.
