This really annoys me! We are a small household, shop once a fortnight and I portion out our shopping and freeze into meal sized lots. I have avoided foods marked “Thawed for your convenience”.
Recently I bought 2 trays of Inghams Chicken Tenders as they were going very cheap, and at home froze them into 6 portions. It was only when I was looking over the label for cooking instructions that I saw in microscopic writing “Thawed for your convenience, not suitable to freeze”. I checked the Inghams Chicken Schnitzels (a pack of 15) that we usually buy to find the same microscopic wording and had to leave them in the store.
A shop “thawing for your convenience” I can understand, but a manufacturer who thaws a frozen product for sale, taking a storage option away from the consumer, I find annoying. Our shop does not have frozen Ingham products.
I would like to see this wording in the same sized letters as the storage instructions; eg “Refrigerate after opening, do not freeze” in bold and/or larger letters; than a statement further down in small print.
