It's important to follow preparation and cooking instructions on frozen foods and to understand the difference between frozen fruits and frozen vegetables.
Frozen fruits don’t bear cooking instructions because they are best enjoyed right out of the bag.
Need to be cooked according to package cooking instructions for safety and quality.
Both frozen fruit and frozen vegetable manufacturers follow stringent food safety practices.
Most frozen fruits may naturally prevent or reduce the growth of potentially harmful bacteria.
Frozen vegetables may not prevent growth of potentially harmful bacteria. Always follow the package cooking instructions to guarantee your frozen vegetables are safe to eat.
Note: this cooking step is especially important for consumers who fall in vulnerable populations (pregnant women, infants, elderly and immunocompromised).
