Odd or Bad Taste in Food from Freezer - Chest and Upright Freezer

Possible Solutions

Is the food properly stored?

Check to make sure that the food is properly stored.  Food that is not properly stored can transfer taste and odors when stored next to each other. Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help avoid odor and taste transfer from stored food.

Does the food have freezer burn?

Ice crystals that have formed on meat and other food items naturally occurs when water molecules, in the food, separate and dehydrate that area.  Freezer burn may cause an off odor and may alter the taste and texture of the food.  Store food properly to help eliminate or avoid freezer burn. 

Does the freezer need to be defrosted or cleaned?

Proper and routine cleaning of the freezer will help with taste and odor transfer.
