Will air-activated toe warmers in checked baggage trigger a TSA alert?

I've been using air-activated chemical toe warmers
to deal with the cold, and would like to take a handful with me in checked baggage when I travel. However, in spite of the FAQ saying that they're safe for air travel, I'm not sure whether they'll trigger an alert, and online discussions are old or conflicting. The package lists the contents as "iron, potassium chloride, activated charcoal, water, vermiculite" and declares them to be non-toxic and non-flammable.
Anyone travelled with them recently?
