Fresh or Frozen?
According to USDA regulations, the term fresh on a poultry label refers to any raw poultry product that has never been below 26 °F.
Raw poultry held at 0 °F or below must be labeled frozen or previously frozen.
No specific labeling is required on raw poultry stored at temperatures between 0-25 °F. - it does not have to be labeled as frozen.
Think about that - if vegetables, beef, pies, or any other product is kept at 0-25 °F. it is frozen. But not chicken. It may be hard as a rock, but it does not have to be labeled frozen unless it is held below 0 °F.!
By this standard, the ice cubes in the average home refrigerator would not be classified as frozen!
