I would think that as soon as oxygen in the bag was used up ,the bacteria would begin to die. I would think hours ,rather than days. But don't hold me to that.

I'm thinking along the same lines that 1077 is. If there is no new oxygen getting inside the bag, it cannot survive. At most, I'm guessing 4 to 8 hours...
