What Is the Life Span of the Rib?

Human rib bones generally have a life span of about 7 years. This means that when you purchase a whole prime rib, the bones will become well-suited for you for up to 7 years. While a whole prime rib is a great buy, the life of a rib is not limited to the life of your rib bone. You can use the meat from a rib before it is fully cooked, and you can store it in your refrigerator or freezer for up to 12 months. When you are ready to consume the meat, the rib bone should be fully cooked and cooled before you eat it.

Prime Rib

On average prime rib is around 10 days to go from freezing to un-freezing. The whole reason for keeping it in the fridge is so that it is still safe to eat.
