If meat is pressure canned properly (correct pressure and processing time) than it can be safe up 1 year to 1 1/2 years. Though for best quality you want to use in a year. If the meat is commercially can please go by the expiration date listed on the can. Below is some resources on shelf life of canned meat products:
