What is the expiration date on my item?

Gorton’s frozen seafood products do not have an expiration date. We use a “Best If Used By” and print it on each package. This date will be 15-18 months from the date of production. We recommend that you consume the product by this date for the best flavor and quality.

How long can I keep Gorton’s Seafood Products in my freezer?

For optimal flavor and quality, use your Gorton’s frozen Seafood Product before the “Best If Used By” date that is printed on the package. You can find the “Best If Used By” date on the back or side of the package.

Can I consume the product after the “Best if Used By” date?

Yes, but we don’t recommend it as we can’t promise that products older than the “Best If Used By” date on the package will be of the same quality. The frozen fish may be drier or the breadcrumbs or batter might be soggier than they would otherwise be. However, it is still perfectly safe to eat if cooked according to the directions on the package.

Is there supposed to be an inner bag in the box?

Our frozen seafood packaging is designed to meet the needs of each individual product and to meet our environmental goals. This is why some items contain an inner bag and others do not. Whether a product contains an inner bag or not, you can be assured that all products are crafted to maintain freshness during storage and are packed in food-grade packaging by low-touch/high-sanitary means.
