Deep freezing English sausages?

If two people who are coming to me in March from London both bring the allowed weight of sausages - pork and beef - can I deep freeze those I don't use? I've never heard of this so I'm not sure. Who knows please...

I wouldn't recommend it unless they had been kept in refrigerated conditions all of the time

Re: Deep freezing English sausages?

I do it all the time and we're all still very much alive and have never been Ill from eating them. If they're wrapped up well in insulating material and brought over in hold baggage they're still pretty chilled when they arrive here.

Just watch out for sniffer dogs.

I've brought sausages and bacon over for freezing several times. I temd to put it in my suitcase with a couple of those freezer packes or frozen bottles of water. They're usually still chilled (and the bottles still frozen) by the time I get here. YMMV (literally) if you're flying long-haul.

I would vacuum-pack the sausages and keep them as cold as possible during transfer, then freeze them asap (still vacuum-packed). If they get infected with the usual pathogens (Streptococcus, E. coli, Staphylococcus) through careless handling or exposure to air, freezing will do nothing to kill the pathogens.

Re: Deep freezing English sausages?

My folks regularly bring frozen sausages from the UK. They normally drive down and pack them in a cooler bag, although they have brought some in suitcases when flying in the past. Wrapping a few sheets of newspaper around each package helps a bit too.

We then refreeze them when they arrive and use over the next few weeks/months. No issues so far!

Re: Deep freezing English sausages?

You'll be fine. If they're good enough to eat they're good enough to freeze.
