How long does frozen breastmilk last ?

Can frozen breastmilk spoil? My frozen milk from the first days of supply has broken down and developed a spider web like structure at the this because there is more fat in the beginning when the milk first comes in or is this a sign something went wrong and i should not use it?

Thanks for your query.
The frozen breast milk can be used normally but the presence of cobweb like structure means that now it is not fit for use.You need to discard that milk and boil the utensils in which it was kept.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
