First of all lets get one assurance made…it is highly unlikely that the meat is ruined! I know guys who don’t even use the UMAi bags and just leave their meat sitting raw in their refrigerator for the whole aging process. I might add that those guys are normally single men without a wife to get hysteria!
Unless the meat has been punctured or heaven forbid “tenderized” which can cause bacteria to be driven into the meat you are fine! Also as long as your refrig is working properly you are fine!
If you are still concerned then carefully try to locate the leaking hole by pushing the air out slowly. When located just put a piece of strong tape over the hole.
