    Hello, and welcome to Stack Exchange. It is my understanding that frozen foods may become unappetizing, but because microbes can't multiply in frozen foods they won't become dangerous. (4 years is pretty long, though; are you sure they never melted?) Aug 24, 2016 at 0:32

It is fine to eat but it's all going to be flavorless from freezer burn, most likely. Freezing periods for beef and pork are about 4-5 months, ground meat 2-3 months, and poultry about 6-8 months.
