I was defrosting a bag of frozen milk in the refrigerator and I noticed it is leaking! Should I pitch it? Not sure how or why the bag would have ripped. It is one of the lansinoh bags made for milk..

I'd pitch it. Any air getting in the bag could have caused freezer burn.

I've never had a problem with the lansinoh bags. Must have gotten caught on something.

Yes pitch it. It's sad to see it go to waste but you shouldn't take the chance. I, second the Medela bags. I never used the other but - I never had to switch because of any incident, either.

I ALWAYS had issues with the Lansinoh bags breaking! It drove me nuts! I got alot of them free in my breast pad boxes, but they convinced me to stick with the Medela bags instead!
I agree that you might want to pitch it. And buy the Medela bags as soon as you can. They are MUCH better.

I agree with Jen. The milk might taste pretty nasty from the freezer. To put my two cents in, I recommend freezer organizer drawers for your breast milk bags. They are white and available at Babies R Us. They should keep your bags from tearing.
