While we were (b”h) very lucky in having power throughout the hurricane this past week, some people were not as lucky. Ironically, when viewing our energy provider’s website our power flickered for long enough to shutoff the computer, which was quite bizarre. Anyway, while most of our perishables (which incidentally consisted of not all that much) were safe in our working fridge and freezer, I forgot that I had placed a stash of chicken soup, challah, and kugels in someone else’s house that didn’t have power. In retrospect, I should have moved all the items to our fridge and freezer at that point. Whoops. To add a complication to the matter, we do not know how long the freezer was without power or how many times it had been opened. All we know is that the power was off for at least 48 hours but not more than 72 hours, and the contents were then frozen immediately after the power was restored. So, being that we are not food safety experts, perhaps someone can help us out. Is this stuff still safe to eat?
