The average shelf life of Cryovac meats is around 7 days if it's cooked, and 4-6 months if it is frozen. If kept at refrigerated temperatures, it is likely to only last about 3 days.
Six weeks is about how long cryovac meats will last in a refrigerated situation. Once cryovac meats are frozen they are protected against being spoiled by bacteria, as well as getting freezer burn.

The cryovac packaging process vacuum seals the product in an effort to maintain the meat quality by locking out all air.
