Nope - and the person who told you that obviously didn't know what they were talking about. A Black Forest ham is cured - it has a couple of "added" preservatives .... salt and smoke.
But, it doesn't need preservatives to freeze it ... otherwise you couldn't freeze fresh fish, shellfish, beef, chicken, lamb, ducks, turkey, vinison, bison, etc.
