Generally, frozen meat products come with a frozen best before date of over 6 months.
Each product comes with its own label and expiration date. The expiration is written in Japanese: 賞味期限 (shou-mi-ki-gen) and the format is yyyy/mm/dd. Please check each individual product at hand.
Plan ahead. Calculate about 24h per 1kg or 2lbs. Note: Once completely defrosted the sealed pack is safe and of good quality for 3 days if stored in the fridge. Can be refrozen without cooking, there is no safety concern but a slight noticeable decline in taste and quality.
Use a big bowl and fully submerge in cold tap water, change the water every hour so it continues to defrost. Note: Double bag to prevent water entering the pack in case the vacuum seal breaks. We recommend cooking the meat after defrosting as soon as possible. Do not refreeze again for quality and safety reasons.
Note: When defrosting meat always place the packs in the lowest compartment in the fridge. This is a precautionary common practice to prevent a possible liquid leakage on all the items below. Always double-bag the items or place in a bowl to prevent leakage of blood in case the pack's vacuum seal breaks during the defrosting process.
