How long does pork keep in the freezer?

gomes | Nov 9, 2009 04:24 PM

We were cleaning out our chest freezer yesterday and found a lot of hidden treasures, many of which we unfortunately had to throw away, like a once beautiful sirloin tip, that is now visibly discoloured. However, I did unearth two racks of pork spareribs, which were vacuum packed. They don't really look bad, but it probably has been down there for at least a year. Are they still safe for consumption and is there a rule of thumb for keeping vacuum packed pork in the freezer?
