Yeah, I think they are on the way to getting excessively exposed to air. From http://www.backdoorsurvival.com/survival-basics-oxygen-absorbers/


Another good test of their viability is to pick one up an hold it. It may feel warm. It will also feel soft and powdery, like a little pillow. If it gets real hot and uncomfortable, it is in full out working mode and has probably been exposed to the air for too long to be usable. In this case it may also start to feel hard and brick like. Toss it.
