Because botulism can and might grow in the jar...  Water bath canning is ONLY for acidic foods....  botulism can't grow in acidic foods..  a vacuum sealer does not adequately remove all oxygen for preserving as well as pressure canning... 

You should get a US gov't preserving foods booklet or us the internet and only use gov't approved methods....

Holy cow.

Your saying you vac seal then leave un-refrigerated?

That sounds dangerous to me.
