    So long as you buy it from a reputable pet-food source, like Hare Today, yes. They freeze it immediately after they grind it. But don't buy it pre-ground from a grocery store. They keep it at refrigerator temperatures because they assume it's going to be cooked for human consumption. Grinding vastly increases the surface area for bacteria to grow.

    My supermarket guideline is if it’s in the freezer section, I just make sure there was nothing added. If it’s in the refrigerated section, I avoid altogether. The refrigerated section uses chemicals to make meat look fresher than it is. They want to sell old meat if they can. They assume it won’t be an issue if you cook it. Their goals are at odds with mine.
