Frozen pecans

Asked July 17, 2020, 2:01 PM EDT

I have pecans in the shell that have been stored in the freezer of my refrigerator for at least 10 years. Are they still safe to eat?

I thank you for your question.
From what I've read, for quality and safety, frozen storage for up to 2 years is recommended by several academic references and the US Pecan Grower Council.
I've listed the websites for your own reference.
