|I bought two boxes of these to try before buying more. These are Mil Surplus, but think OLD. I was cautious because of the age on these things, now some 28 years young. They arrived and inside each box is three sealed foil pouches containing the tabs, BUT, in each box one pouch was unopened but empty. The others had solid tabs but much, much smaller than the original imprint in the foil. The Trioxane seems to be breaking down and turning to nothing. If they weren't so cheap I'd return them.
Another buyer noted the tabs were smaller in his new order, that is probably why, they are simply degrading and disappearing. So I recommend their purchase, but expect to get less than you bought and plan to use them quickly. If you are purchasing for a bug out bag that will sit for years without being deployed, buy similar products new. CTD, needs to close out these as they will soon only have empty pouches in inventory.|
