Q.

I bought frozen roasted green chiles with dry ice. They thawed on a cross-country trip, but were still cold. Are they safe?

A good indicator of how cold your food has been kept is the dry ice in the package.  If there was still even a little dry ice left on arrival, you can be sure your chilies were kept quite cold.  If not, but they were still partially frozen or cold to the touch, they’re still probably safe.

The above is simply our best guess given the information provided.  Given that we didn’t roast the chilies, sell the chilies, freeze the chilies, or know what temperature they were at (for how long) while thawing we can’t be absolutely sure.
