Yes try re-drying them, you have nothing to lose.... if they smell bad, then maybe they are lost

Good luck

It sounds like your shrooms probably were cracker dry when you put them in the bag. My guess is that you didn't get the bag completely sealed or it was permeable, and the dessicant sucked in moisture from the outside air. If this happened, the water in your bag probably has the dessicant in it and was absorbed by the shrooms as well. I looked up the material safety data sheet for calcium chloride, which is what Damp Rid is. It says in case of ingestion, induce vomiting and get medical attention because calcium chloride may irritate the gastrointestinal tract, although calcium chloride is otherwise low in toxicity. Given this, I wouldn't chance it. Don't eat the mushrooms.


All pictures posted by me were found on the internet. Moreover, I do not grow mushrooms containing controlled substances nor do I possess any controlled substances.
