Is it dangerous to swallow a freshness packet from a pill bottle?

Is it dangerous to swallow a freshness packet from a pill bottle?:

"Q.When I took some medication this morning, I thought I'd accidentally swallowed the freshness packet in the vial instead of my pill. Luckily, I didn't, but what if I had? Is that dangerous?

A. No. The small paper packets or plastic packages you find in certain containers of medication, dietary supplements, and vitamins are drying agents called desiccants that contain nontoxic silica gel, a kind of sand."
