Can I freeze All Natural Blue Crab?

Yes, you can. If storage time longer than one month is required, then freezing of the product is recommended; however, the consumer needs to be aware that freezing will also change the flavor and texture of the crabmeat. Freezing is a safe method for home preservation of crabmeat, but should be used only when longer than recommended time is required between purchase and use. Store crabmeat in home freezers at 10°F or below for up to 3 months. If your freezer will not maintain 10°F, then shorter shelf life will result. The plastic containers are susceptible to cracking, however, so you may wish to remove the meat and use an airtight freezer bag instead. When using a freezer bag, expel all air and flatten the bag as much as possible so that the meat lies in a thin layer.
