Frozen products

The surface of frozen seafood products should be free of any sign of freezer burn, which usually appears in the form of opaque, dry sections on the surface. Any protective ice glaze present on the product should be intact and not cracked.

There should be no sign that the product has been partially thawed and then re-frozen. A possible indication of this can often be if there is an excess amount of ice crystals loose in packaging or on the product itself.
