Why Can We Not Reuse Freezer Bags Used for Raw Meats or Seafood?

inventivefficiency | Nov 9, 2009 07:13 PM

I couldn't find any educated or informed answers googling. Comments just say they wouldn't reuse freezer bags that had raw meats in them but no reason why.

Does cooking not kill any potentially dangerous bacteria?

Do people do it out of habit? like how they peel carrots for cosmetic reasons?
