Oxygen absorbers are made of a chemical compound, the active ingredient of which is a powdered iron oxide. Our absorbers are completely safe. While they are not edible, they are not toxic. No harmful gases are created and the oxygen does not remove the fresh smell and taste of the product. When used with proper packaging and sealing, the oxygen in the packaging is greatly reduced. Our absorbers bring the oxygen level down reliably to.01-percent Or less.

After opening the package I kept them in a mason jar and when ready to use they did not work.

When you get them, open the bag and immediately put them in a canning jar or a jar with a TIGHT sealable lid. If you have a Foodsaver, suck the air our of the jar. Quickly put the lid on and tighten. Take out only what you are using RIGHT THEN.
Those things that come in shoes and pill bottles are not the same thing. A real O2 absorber is fantastic for food storage.
Lesson learned: if you order these things, maybe put in a note for the seller to look at the exposure tablets and only ship you red ones. Otherwise you might as well toss an old sock in- it will absorb just as much oxygen as these things will.
The photos were identical for both the 300cc and 100cc products, so I ordered both. When I received them, they were in fact both nearly indistinguishable in size and marking (see my other review of the "300cc" sachets, where I posted a photo).
I went to the OxyFree's website where they list the 100cc sachets in 100-count packages.
The sealed package from THIS seller of the 100cc sachets included a tag which indicated the 504A SKU number referenced on OxyFree's website, along with a QC number. This seemed to be evidence of a genuine product/description. Furthermore, the sealing of the plastic bag was uniform all the way around. The sachets measured about 35x55mm (somewhat inconsistent with the 40x50mm dimensions on the website).
On the other hand, the "300cc" sachets from the other vendor now start to look suspicious (see my other review for all of the reasons).
While the sachets I bought from this link did not include the freshness-indicating tablet mentioned by another reviewer, it appears that the 100-count bags were probably sealed by OxyFree, and I have more confidence in them than the others I bought.
I rated this product only 4 stars instead of 5 because I think the indicator tablet is a good idea, but it was absent. I don't have any actual test results to prove whether these work, so I'm going on faith. It at least appears that they are described and packaged properly.
