Freezing

Does freezing kill germs?

Rating: 79

Freezing does not kill all bacteria, yeasts and molds present in food, but it does prevent their multiplication if the food is held at 0 F or less. When thawed, the surviving organisms can multiply again. Source: Original FAQ posted at http://128.192.83.157/faq/FAQ_home.php
