    Default Frozen milk left on counter. What should I do?

    DH left a few bags (my entire freezer stash) on the kitchen counter for about an hour. It was slush when I found it. Is it ok to put it back in the freezer or do I need to use it in the next 24 hours or dump it?

    I think it's ok for 24 hours after the entire bag has thawed - so you may have 48 hours to use it?

    THat sucks. I'm sorry that happened.

    I have no milk to leave my MIL tomorrow when I go to the dentist. I guess I'll be up all night pumping.

    Thanks for the response even if it isn't what I wanted to hear.

    I'm sorry. You could always taste it. If it tastes ok, then give it.
