It is important that you do not contaminate your meat and vacuum seal harmful bacteria in with your food. Vacuum sealing can extend the fridge life of meats as well, but because anaerobic bacteria can grow at temperatures above 3°F, all vacuum-packed refrigerated meats should be unsealed and cooked within 10 days.
The doors on your refrigerator and freezer are the most convenient, but also the warmest. Never put uncovered foods in your refrigerator. Remember that you cannot see, taste or smell bacteria until it’s too late and can cause serious food illnesses.
