Our refrigerator every so often gets a large build up of ice at the back, a sure indication that the freezer needs manual defrosting.
Quite often we have discovered packets of cooked meat, vegetables etc. are partially frozen, e.g. maybe 50% of their area or so in the refrigerator.
Am I correct in assuming these items are safe to eat and worse case all this will result in is a loss of quality issue? My reasoning here is that as they have not been in the temperature danger zone while being stored in the refrigerator. Would this still apply though even if we have not noticed them freezing and defrosting over a couple of days?
