spoiled frozen milk?
Thu, 08-27-2009 - 9:51pm

I have been trying to rotate my frozen supply by sending one bottle a day of frozen milk. Two days ago and the today, when I thawed the milk, it smelled...weird. I don't know if it was spoiled, but it was a really strong odor and when I smelled the freshly pumped bottles, they didn't really have much of an odor at all.

I am storing my milk in a freezer attached to my fridge (but with separate doors), not a deep freezer. The milk I have been unfreezing this week is from the beginning of May, not quite four months old. Could it be spoiled? I've been throwing them out (but feeling really bad about it). I thought milk in the freezer was good for about 4 months!

Thanks for your help!

It certainly *should* still be good, but it's possible that something went wrong w/ those bags.
