Is it safe to freeze meat if its on the expiration date?

    Meat, as far as I know does not have an expiration date, only a packaging date. If this is the date that you are going off of, then it is definately safe to freeze the meat. But it is always safe to double check the freshness by smelling, tasting, looking for discoloration, and feeling for the consistency.

    P.S. if there is a sell by date, then the same applies. Freezing the meat on the sell by date should be safe.

    I have done that myself so I would say yes to your question. I have frozen meat on the packaging’s expiration date and nothing bad happened. I wouldn’t leave it in the freezer longer than a week.
