Food Safety Issues/corned beef storage

Question
How long can you keep a corned beef vacuumed sealed in its original package frozen?

Answer
Hi Paul,

The recommendation for freezer storage of a vacuumed sealed corned beef is up to 12 months.  This guideline is for quality, not safety, as foods that are continuously frozen are safe for years and years.  The quality of frozen food deteriorates the longer that it is in the freezer, but it is still safe to consume.
