Take them out and see how they react. The fridge might have been too cold for them depending on how cold they get in the wild.

this is usually how ants hibernate, i think.
Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8

Make sure your fridge is not too cold. If you can adjust the cooling level, lower it to increase temp. Also don't put your ants close to where the cooling comes out because that can be significantly colder than the rest of the fridge and could even freeze them. I've never seen hibernating Tetramorium on their backs.
