Puffy packaging around frozen chicken

Crankyrobot | Apr 10, 2014 05:54 PM

Hey all.
So I purchased a lovely chicken from Trader Joe's and popped it in the freezer.

I took it out last night and noticed the packaging is a bit....puffy. Like the it's filled with air. Of course it's now freezer burned, but I'm still interested in cooking it because I hate to waste food.

Could this indicate any sort of spoilage or could it become spoiled as it thaws?

What a bummer.
