Checking my stores of mylar bagged dry goods. Did not vacuum seal. Most bags have drawn in like they had been, some have not. What does generally mean in both cases? All 1 gallon sized bags with oxygen, some with moisture absorption too depending on food.

most likely OK - the 02 absorbers just draw the 02 - if you didn't purge the extra air out of each bag exactly the same - you get different results ....

always check for pin holes and other flaws like sharp creases and bad heat sealed seams ....

get ALL your bags ready to go - then open the factory sealed pack of 02 absorbers - you got 15 minutes to heat seal those bags closed ...

good practice to wipe the inside bag lips clean of any poured food residue - you need those two lips to heat bond together cleanly ....
