Back some time ago we discussed frozen vacuum packed fish that had "Remove from Bag Before thawing" or something like that.

There was discussion about bacteria and the vacuum bagged foods.

I now have a question. Should I thaw out beef or chicken or fish I have vacuumed and frozen in the vacuum bag? Or should I remove it, then defrost it?

I let it thaw in the package. Often, I will cut a slit in the bag, then defrost in the microwave.

I just went back and looked at the site for the sale. It has been extended to 9/30.
