Question: True or False: Will freezing food kills harmful bacteria that can cause food poisoning?


ANSWER: FALSE. Bacteria can survive freezing temperatures. Freezing is not a method for making food safe to eat. When food is thawed, bacteria can still be present and may begin to multiply. Listeria monocytogenes and the Hepatitis A virus are two examples of foodborne pathogens that can survive for long periods at freezing temperatures.

We’re also taking about some of the food trends and new thinking in innovative solutions to solving the biggest food and agriculture concerns with President and Co-Founder of Food Tank Danielle Nierenberg. Food Tank, a  nonprofit organization focused on building a global community for safe, healthy, nourished eaters.
