I purchased a case of these from an online vendor to stash with the rest of my food storage. The unmolested foil packages were stored in a climate controlled room with very little fluctuation in temperature and humidity. When purchased, all were freshly packaged and well sealed.

Nine months later half of the packages had lost their seal. I contacted Datrex and received very polite and prompt communication. They advised that I throw out the rations that had lost their seal as they may have gone bad. There was no offer to replace the rations.

I went ahead and opened one of the remaining packs to take a taste. Very good for an emergency ration, but I have no confidence in this product. If half of my supply was unable to stay in a climate controlled environment for nine months without going bad I shudder to think what would happen if my life depended on a case of these that had been thrown in a trunk or stored in a less ideal climate.

April 30, 2011:
When my order arrived I found one of the four pouches had lost its seal. A replacement was sent but the replacement had also lost its seal.

Out of the five total pouches I received two had bad seals. I cannot recommend a product that has such a high failure rate.

Update- November 10, 2014:
It has been over three years now and all the packages that arrived sealed stayed sealed up until recently.

These were stored inside a backpack, inside a climate controlled shelter. While updating my go bag the zipper rubbed one food pouch causing it to loose it's seal.

This leads me to I believe the seal problem I initially experienced was due to rough handling by the seller or shipper. It appears the product itself was not defective but needs to be handled nicely to avoid seal breach.

Out of curiosity I took one of my other food bricks and dropped it from counter top height onto a finished concrete floor. It looked ok for about an hour but then lost it's seal. Some would say this is product abuse but in my opinion a survival product should be able to take a fall off a common counter top.

I saved my last Dartrex food brick to see if it makes it all the way to the expiration date.

I replaced this product with "Millennium Energy Bars Assorted". They are more expensive per cal but every bar on the two sets I ordered came in sealed, and they can survive a fall off a counter top.

I have purchased and reviewed the Datrex DX2400F ration and find they are a complete failure as anything but a $10 cookie.

In addition to being a professional Soldier who has attended and participated in numerous SERE (Survive, Escape, Resist and Evade) schools and exercises, I have also been through 5 hurricanes, 3 typhoons, 2 wars and a lot of other emergencies. In such times we need optimal nutrition, not snacks, especially if we have limited carrying and storage space.

I am also an avid athlete with more than a passing familiarity with nutrition and it's impact on health and sustainability, two major components of surviving any disaster.

MY ASSESSMENT IS THAT THESE RATIONS TOTALLY FAIL IN EVERY CATEGORY NECESSARY FOR EMERGENCY AND SURVIVAL RATIONS! Each bar has only 1% of the daily minimum of essentials like Vitamin C and 7% of the essential protein for a sedentary male weighing 150 pounds or less. In an emergency, you will NOT be sedentary. They are made of wheat, sugar, oil and coconut and salt. For $10 you could buy a handful of Clif bars and have 10 times the nutritional value available to you.

Labeling the product an "Emergency Ration" is slick advertising hustling and hucksterism at it's finest.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN EMERGENCY RATION THIS IS NOT THE PRODUCT TO BUY!!!!! Buy a bag of Lorna Doone cookies, they taste exactly the same in fact but won't mislead you that you bought an Emergency Ration.

Should've read the other reviews more carefully. One of the packages had lost its seal. 25% fail and too much of a pain to return all for a refund.

I ordered two packs (totally 8 bars) and one of them I can tell the vacuum seal is not good any more and I can feel there is a small amount of air inside, which is a sign of the food bar inside going bad. I will not try to depend on these bars for my life - I would choose to feel hungry rather than getting food poison...

This stuff is kinda tasty, stays fresh for a long time, and packs small.

I suggest it for any survival kit where space is limited but still available. In other words, get cheaper bulkier stuff for your home. (Mountain House Hardtack is good there, along with some peanut butter and canned goods). This is for your car, boat, plane, or office. It's standard issue in many lifeboats. It does not require cooking and is moist enough so that it's not thirst provoking.

*WARNING!* Contains coconut, and not just a trace. Do NOT buy or consume if you have coconut allergies! I had a friend break out in hives just for being in the same room

I read the review & thought I'd risk it. Placed a double order (8 packs) 96 bars total. There are 12 bars to a vacuum sealed foil pack. 4 packs per order. 5 Year Shelf Life.

Issue 1 - Damaged Foil - All of the seals seem OK, save one pack that has been impacted and punctured. Looks like an ice pick hit it! All Amazon Packaging was ok, so the puncture must have been at Datrex. I requested a replacement pack - we'll see if I get it.

Issue 2 - Shelf Life - All 8 packs were manufactured in May 2012. They were nearly 11 months old when I received them. Effectively, these are only good for 4 years.

Bottom line: For $18.69 per order (Amazon free shipping price) I was hoping for a wee bit more in product packaging & shelf life. They're OK. But for $38.38 I could have purchased 4 of those $10 bricks of energy bars at Costco and packed them away long enough to last 4 years. If I had to do it over, I'd invest my money elsewhere...should have bought another #10 can...
