If it was frozen in a vacuum packed bag...just about forever. 

If it was frozen with just a thin wrapping of plastic wrap in a styro container that has plenty of air... I wouldn't go much longer than 6 months.

I go 4 to 6 months.  But I lean toward the 4 month area

6 months max. If it is re-wrapped from the grocery store packing it is safer. Freezing just slows the growth of bacteria, it doesn't eliminate it altogether.
