Snow Crab Legs

by Christy
(Phoenix, AZ)

How long can you keep snow crab legs? I bought them from a store and they were cooked and then frozen and shrink wrapped. I must have bought them months ago...are they still safe to eat?
There are dark spots on them but they don't smell bad..

Since they were pre-cooked and shrink wrapped (vacuum sealed) I would say the are definitely still good. The dark spots are most likely a naturally occurring phenomenon that happens to most all crab (King, Dungeness, etc...) and should not be a concern.
We here at Crab-O-Licious have vacuum seal Dungeness and put them in the freezer and have been able to Enjoy! them as much as 12 months later after boiling and freezing them. Enjoy!
