I try to date items in the freezer so that it's obvious how long they've been there - doing this takes out the guess work and keeps you and your family safe from spoiled food. Below is a chart from the Canadian Partnership for Consumer Food Safety Education so that moving forward you will know how long food can be stored in your refrigerator and freezer.
Remember, when in doubt, throw it out!
