The declaration says "Made in Germany for Kodak Alaris limited" and the production date is 2019.10.07. That means these are newer than the ones Kodak has warned about and also made by another factory. The powder is nice and dry as it should be, and some minutes ago I pulled a nicely developed roll of Fuji Acros out of the tank.
So KA knew that the packaging was bad? As they changed it some time before 10.07. (lets assume that's October 7 as it ended up on the US market). When did the warning /acknowledgement appear on Facebook? Seems like some time passed in between... Of course if we give them the benefit of the doubt the new packaging could be the byproduct of the change of manufacturer and just incidentally work properly.
