    Default Should I throw out milk?

    My block just had a power outage that lasted about an hour. I have several bags of milk in the freezer. I just checked them and they are still fully frozen. Can I still keep and use this milk?

    Thanks!

    yup... as long as they still have ice crystals they would be fine..
    if you don't open your freezer and it's packed full it should stay cold for a long time!

    I would say definitely yes. 1 hour is nothing. You may still check the taste before you give them to your baby in case.

    ABSOLUTELY!!! As long as they're still frozen, nothing to worry about. I know what you mean, cuz my block had a power outage that lasted 2.5 hours. I was going CRAZY since I have over 200 oz in a separate freezer. Boy was I releived when the power came back.
