Default Is it safe to feed thawed out chicken then refreeze?

As above really?
I've been a dumbass and have a frozen lump of poussin pieces, would it be safe to semi thaw out in the fridge then divide then refreeze? I'm getting conflicting advice, I don't want to poison my pup

I asked this awhile back. I'm a vegetarian and have never stored meat in my life before Odie. The consensus was that it is okay to thaw (only in the fridge) and then refreeze. Just try to not over thaw it. I read somewhere that it should be very cold to the touch.

Yes it is perfectly safe. The only reason we don't do it with meat for human consumption is because it impairs the flavour/texture. Dogs don't care lol. The whole rabbits I buy are frozen, as are the ox hearts, I have to defrost before portioning, then I re-freeze and have never had an issue. I wouldn't freeze anything that had been hanging around at room temperature, but if it has been in the fridge it will be fine.

Please be careful, I work in the food industry and chicken should not be refrozen after thawed. The bacteria even after cooking can cause your dog to be ill. Have you ever had food poison? It's not nice.

Sorry didn't see your last post, yeah food poison is awful. My girlfriends dog kept getting sick after a visit to the vets found out that it was the cooked rice. She was cooking a weeks worth and by the 5 day the rice had so much bacteria in it the poor dog would start vomiting so you can imagine what chicken would like...

How would you portion chicken without thawing it? Surely meat-eaters aren't cooking and eating entire packages of chicken all at the same time?

Dogs are designed to cope with bacteria found in meat. They can bury meat, leave it a couple of weeks, dig it up and eat it with no ill effects! Their digestive system is geared up for digesting meat that isn't necessarily fresh.
They are not designed to eat grains though, I am not surprised that the 5 day old rice caused trouble, it is not a natural food for a dog. If rice is to be fed it should be treated the same as if for human consumption, I certainly wouldn't eat 5 day old rice!
