How long are you boiling for?
also when I seal I make sure to flatten the bag with the pork in it so its no more than 1/4-1/2 inch thick..warms up quicker thus less time in the boiling water
I've had it happen with food saver bags and the walmart brand. It seems to happen within 5 minutes of hitting the water, I wait till the water is at a simmer then drop the bag in. I'll try packing in smaller bags to see if that helps. Thanks everyone for all your advice
