mobil oil turning red

I have two mobil delvac 1300, in one gallon containers and the color seems to have changed from normal golden to a reddish tint.
I called mobil and they say I shouldn't be to concerned, has anyone else seen this?

Mobil said the oil can oxidate and turn reddish, but I can't seems to trust putting it in my motor

I dont see a reason to think this over. When in doubt, throw it out. Period.
