Is it safe to eat meat that has been refrozen?

I took some meat out for dinner, however we did not use it, I need to know if it is safe to refreeze and eat later.

Refreezing will harm the texture of the meat and create a product that is not appetizing. Instead of re-freezing, use the meat in a recipe and freeze the prepared food for another time. Or use the meat tomorrow.

Yes, it is safe to refreeze it. However, if the meat was out of the freezer (at the room's temperatures) for more than 10 hours, it's better to cook it now.

It is safe to refreeze it. Moisture may be lost in defrosting, so the meat might look and taste drier when it is defrosted again and eventually eaten.

You should not eat meat that has been refrozen because in the time it took to defrost, the meat was in the danger zone of 40 to 140 degrees.
