As I replied to another poster earlier today...
... as long as the meat stays cold during the transfer and you are working in a clean environment in your kitchen the risk is pretty low. You might want to use bottled water and a clean sprayer.

Well, hopefully the rebag was a success. I figured the weak link of my operation here. When I took the meat out of the old bag, I cleaned the old bag and used it to practice some sealing. I saw dead spots on the seal. So looks like my vacuum sealer will be going to the trash. I put the meat in a new bag and did the straw and zip tie method. Hopefully it keeps vacuum enough for the bag to adhere to the meat.

Looking good! You're in for some great meals ahead! How long are you planning to age them?

Instructions say 28-45 days. So I'm gonna go in the middle at 35 days. This is gonna be the longest 35 days of my life! Haha!

Fine - you want to stay with the aging period suggested per instructions...nothing wrong with that decision! As you become a veteran here at dry aging you may want to age the thicker sub-primals such as ribeye and sirloin for 45, 60 or even longer.
