In brief: Most likely no...

The little white package contains silica gel, a substance used to prevent moisture.
If swallowed, it should pass without problem. Drinking plenty of water can help with stomach irritation. If distress, in any form, continues after ingesting the silica gel, contact a poison control center or local medical care.
