    Default Is there such a thing as too frozen?

    Hey mamas. I just got a new digital thermometer for my chest freezer (with an alarm!) where all my frozen milk is. It's showing -7 degrees F. The guidelines for frozen milk go from 0 to -4 degrees F.

    This might be a dumb question, but is that OK? Any harm in it being TOO frozen?

    Thanks!

    i wouldn't think so. biggest risk would be freezer burn, but if your bags are sealed you should be ok.

    I use mostly the honeysuckle bags - and I keep about 10 honeysuckle bags (with 6 ounces each) in a large ziplock bag. Should be OK. Thanks!
