Fortunately the pork would probably stink enough you would not actually cook it.

Now cooked meat is a little different although it's not allowed by the HD. Only 1 freezing after cooking. For home it should be OK. Personally I'd cut it frozen with an electric knife or a frozen food serrated blade.
That's kinda the way I've always lived. I just didn't know why. I think I'll cook them up and give them away. Thanks for the responses.
