It should have been in the discounted section.
Food does last well past the best by date.
The cold must have done something to the yeast or another ingredient. Or it could have been defrosted and refrozen. Someone took it out of the freezer and left it on another shelf somewhere and a store employee put it back in the freezer.
Wasn't sourdough was it?
