SOURCE: Can I refreeze meat that

Sure. This is Ok. It will not harm the meat or your health. The quality of the meat will diminish, slightly, but that is all. It is perfectly safe to refreeze the meat.

SOURCE: Is it safe to refreeze

Refreezing
Once food is thawed in the refrigerator, it is safe to refreeze it without cooking, although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through thawing. After cooking raw foods which were previously frozen, it is safe to freeze the cooked foods. If previously cooked foods are thawed in the refrigerator, you may refreeze the unused portion. Freeze leftovers within 3-4 days. Do not refreeze any foods left outside the refrigerator longer than 2 hours; 1 hour in temperatures above 90 °F.

Can you refreeze cooked meat?


Yes you can no problem. As long as there is a cooking process between thawing and refreezing.

Refreeze unopened vacuum package cooked ham that has thawed in refrigerator?


It is not best practice to refreeze things and it is the sort of thing that gets people sacked from catering jobs and other food-related employment because in that sort of environment the practice is against hygiene regulations.

We have all done it and mostly got away with it but I wouldn't risk it with a product that will eventually be eaten without further cooking. Refreezing stuff that will be cooked or thoroughly heated after eventual thawing is a calculated risk environmentally and economically-minded people are willing to take but cooked ham is a risk too far unless you intend to use it in soups, hashes or similar.
A heavily smoked ham would probably survive the process in a slightly safer condition than unsmoked.

I hope I have helped you make a good decision.

Refreezing food the perils


Refreezing food is not dangerous, the danger is that food can spoil before it's refrozen or after it's thawed again before being cooked and eaten. Freezing food does not kill bacteria, so once thawed bacteria continues to multiple at the same exponential rate it was multiplying at before being frozen.
Refreezing also reduces quality because the already slightly damaged cells are being expanded with ice crystals again. This isn't a big deal for meats or baked foods but is huge for rice, pasta, fruits and veggies.
Try to figure out how long things have been thawing/thawed to help you make a safe decision. And never feed a pet food you wouldn't eat, they can get food poisoning too.

although there may be a loss of quality due to the moisture lost through defrosting. After cooking raw foods which were previously frozen, it is safe to freeze the cooked foods. And if previously cooked foods are thawed in the refrigerator, you may refreeze the unused portion.

If you purchase previously frozen meat, poultry or fish at a retail store, you can refreeze if it has been handled properly.

Yes, you can refreeze it but it will freezer burn and maybe a bit more tough and have less flavor....you will just have to cook it more throughly...
