Previously Frozen Meat, Poultry, or Fish

Section B.01.080 of the Food and Drug Regulations provides special labelling requirements for meat, poultry or fish that has been previously frozen (i.e. frozen and thawed prior to sale). In this section, "frozen" means preserved by freezing temperature and does not include any surface freezing that may occur during holding and transportation.

Where meat (or meat by-products), poultry meat (or poultry meat by-products) or fish (or meat of any marine or fresh water animal) that has been frozen is thawed prior to sale, refer to the requirements related on Previously Frozen Meat and Previously Frozen Fish for more information.
