They generally have a 10 year data retention rating. Yours still work, because they have extra memory, and perform wear leveling. You will have failures that you don't see, because it reconstructs the data from the ECC info, and moves it to a new page in the 'extra' page blocks on the device. So it'll work fine....until it runs out of extra pages.
