I haven't heard anything at all. J&L says 4-6 weeks before they get any new stock. I did pick up a Salifert test kit and ran a comparison with my Hanna....
Salifert...9.9 dkh/3.53 meq
Hanna 7.44 dkh/2.66 meq

Yikes!

I just got the auto response too. Can the faulty reagents not be trusted at all?

Anyone hear of the new Alk checker? apparently it uses a powder instead of liquid which is more accurante.

Wow , I did the same and picked up a Salifert kit a couple weeks ago just to see and the difference was only 0.5 dkh. And typically Salifert always reads 0.5 ish higher than Hanna. So my reagent seems fine even though it's on the naughty list.

That's the same exact difference I got testing with RedSea...

I was in a LFS in Victoria over the weekend poking around, they had Hanna reagent on the shelf...Probably part of the bad batch, I assume. The guy working was pretty busy so I didn't have a chance to question him on it. This stuff is still out there! How bad is It? seems like it varies, I guess that is the point.
