Sounds like they were venting. Need more info on your setup; Are your packs matched? What type of charger/amps/cutoff/etc...

they have probably vented, this happens sometimes usually after the cells are a bit into there life with a couple hundred cycles. Some people say that this makes the cells crap on the track but i didnt notice any difference. Just watch when you recharge them as they may false peak

Tear the pack apart and throw them outside for a few days then get rid of them.Don't waist time with them the battery's seal has been broken.
