    hi, i bought a vegeatarian lasagne, in november, put it in the freezer and am planning on eating it today.
    though the packagaing says to eat within a month of freezing, its coming to two months now, would be k to still eat, could i get a bad stomach? or should i just follow the guidelines? would would happen to the food after two months of freezing if anything?
    thanks.

    As long as you put it in the freezer and not the ice compartment of the fridge, and you are sure it has not been previously defrosted there should be no problem.

    I wouldn't take any risks, although if you did eat it there probably wouldn't be any problems, I don't see why you would want to, and I don't think anyone should recommend that you eat it after the recommended date.

    its up to you, you should be fine, but why bother?

    Freezing guidelines are even more iffy than best before dates, you'll be fine. We regualrly eat meat and ready meals that have been frozen for much longer than what's recommended, you'll be fine.

    The main things are to make sure you don't re-freeze food and make sure it's fully defrosted and cooked through.

    Worst case scenario, you'll get a funny bowel movement.

    im still eating curries and stuff from over a year ago, and theyre still fine. Best before dates and the like are all bull anywey, anything you get you can guarantee it will be fine to eat for a while after.

    I never ever pay attention to the use by dates on anything, to be honest - especially frozen things. I just go by the look and smell of something when I'm making a judgement on whether it's still edible or not. I know I've eaten things that have been in the freezer for several months in the past and never had a problem at all. Then again, I was the only person on my school trip to Nepal who didn't get some form of stomach upset (despite drinking the local water), so perhaps I just have a weird constitution.
