Is Food Safe with Freezer Burn?

Freezer burn does not make food unsafe, merely dry in spots. It appears as greyish-brown leathery spots and is caused by air encountering the surface of the food. Cut freezer-burned portions away either before or after cooking the food. Heavily freezer-burned foods may have to be discarded for quality reasons.
