I bought some ribs tonight. When I was walking into the house the house the plastic bag tore and the ribs fell to the ground. After picking them up and getting them inside I noticed that air was getting into the cryo-vac packaging and I was leaking juices.
I need these ribs to last for a few days before I cook them.

Does any one have any suggestions? As I do not have access to a vacuum sealer...

You can wrap over them and refrigerate them if you are going to cook in the next 2 to 3 days.

If it will be any longer than that I would wrap over the packaging and then freeze them. Then remove from the freezer and put them into the refrigerator 24 hours before you plan to cook them.

If they smelled ok you are good for a couple days or more.

^ yep, kinda depends on what you mean by "a few" days, you should be good for 2-3 days as stated above, otherwise freeze them.
