Can chicken soup be frozen twice?

I froze chicken soup right after making it, then defrosted it. Is it safe to freeze it again?

I have done it. I think that it is ok as long as it is soon rather than later.

Multiple freeze / thaw cycles are not a safety issue.

Chef Uno, wouldn't the safety issue depend on the product being thoroughly reheated? I have always avoided multiple freeze / thaw cycles for two reasons. First because of the safety issue, but second because reprocessing can cause product degradation.

The short answer is yes, if you bring it to a boil (and cool down) before refreezing.
