Can you freeze fried rice?

I know that you can freeze rice and fried rice for that matter. My real question is how do people not get sick and die from eating frozen or warmed up fried rice the next night?

To make fried rice you ideally need yesterdays left over rice (cooked once), you then cook it with veggies, meat, condiments (cooked twice), at this point you would freeze it or store it in the fridge, and then you defrost and reheat it (cooked a third time) ready to have it for dinner. I was under the impression that with food you should only reheat it once and then discard any leftover.

Did I miss something?
