Can You Freeze Lunch Meat?

Good news, freezing lunch meat is okay! Before we get started, make sure your fridge is at or below 40° F (4° C) and your freezer at 0° F (-17.8° C). Can you freeze cold cuts? Absolutely! Phew, no need to run to the grocery store every week when you can reach into your neatly organized freezer and grab whatever sandwich ingredients your heart desires. Just unroll some of your protective food wrap such as Glad® Freeze’n Seal™ and secure your salami, pastrami or ham to lock in freshness.

Once wrapped, keep food fresh and help prevent freezer burn by placing meats in freezer bags like Glad® Flex'n Seal™ Freezer Quart Bags or Glad® Flex'n Seal™ Freezer Gallon Bags (they stretch to accommodate even more!). With the right storage techniques, you can keep frozen lunch meat for up to 2 months.
