Re: Spoiled frozen food


Did you have any of the product left after feeding? I would think having it 
checked out, in some manner, or via sending a portion back to the company for 
examination, as to nature of the *contamination* would have been called for. 
I don't think dating it would make a difference in this case. If it's free of 
any contaminants, sitting in the freezer an extra few months wouldn't spoil 

This is a scary prospect, because my fish get Sally's frozen food every 

At the very least, did you attempt to contact the company to check on their 
quality control standards?


<< Several months ago I lost a school of 38 semi-adult Corydoras adolfoi to a
 spoiled or contaminated package of "Sally's" frozen brine shrimp cubes.
 Within two days of the first feeding, they were all dead. Then I fed some of
 the remaining food to the 6 parents, and they died the next day also. Ever
 since, I've been looking for a safer way to feed frozen foods.
 Has anyone else had a similar experience? Have you found a way to mitigate
 this risk? Is there a brand of frozen food with a freshness date or some
 other indicator of freshness on it? >>
