Our meals are fresh, never frozen, don’t contain preservatives, and have a 4-7 day shelf life from the date you receive them. The exact amount of days is dependent on the ingredients within that dish. For instance, seafood tends to have a shorter shelf life. Each meal will have the consume by date listed beneath the microwave instructions on the top of the container.
That said, if you don't feel like you're able to enjoy the meals prior to the consume by date listed, we have had customers report success when freezing! If you choose to freeze any item, we suggest freezing the item as close to the date you receive the meal as possible. In addition, we recommend removing it from the freezer the day before you plan to consume, and placing it in the refrigerator so that it has plenty of time to defrost prior to reheating. Please note that our heating instructions on the label are meant for fresh, not frozen, meals, so when heating frozen meals, make sure the meal reaches 165 degrees before consuming.
