Freezer Bag came open.
 
Went out to the freezer in the garage to get some ribs out and noticed the freezer bag with 1/2 a pork loin in it had came open. I have no idea how long it has been open but the meat on the open end was whiter and drier looking, I am thinking I should toss it but thought I would check with the Brethren. Thanks,

Freezer burn. It's still safe to eat but it will be dry and the texture will suffer as well. Sounds like stew!

You can trim that end off, use the rest.

This, for sure. The freezer burn is just where the meat has been dehydrated. Trim it off. The rest of the meat will suffer no flavor loss.

Thanks, I resealed it and will trim off the burned in before I smoke it. :grin:

I've used freezer burned trimmings in chili and stews, never tastes a difference.
