Reef crystals recall warning

Just got off phone with instant ocean/pet group inc

I was having major Ph issues
they told me to stop use immediately
something got in the mix that causes PH to drop drastically
they have had many complaints with this issue and I wasn't the only one

they said they would notify me once they resolve the issue

just figured I would pass along this info in-case other fellow reefers use this mix also

thank god I haven't lost any live stock

they didn't give me much info other than to stop using it
something got in the mix causing major ph drops
the lot was produced in June 2012 that's the date on my tub
unfortunately I cant read the lot # as it was scuffed off

they told me the would contact me when they resolve the issue

what salt brand do you use Pro's/Con's

this was my other post when I started having issues

Woooow... Talk about a major F up. This could be potentially nuking tanks across America I wonder what they will do to make up for it. Especially for any farmers or suppliers that may be using their product with potentially 10s-100s of thousands worth of livestock at risk...

Time to change salt brands I guess hearing lots of bad things about Io lately. Any one used Salinity by seachem?

After doing some googling & searching other forums, seems like RC may have had some issues for a while now....... Lots of posts out there regarding errant calc/alk readings over the past couple years, not just recently. A lot of those seem to have been blown off to other potential causes (which is possible), but many of the older complaints are matching up with current issues.

I think if it was a major recall and issues, there would have been postings on major suppliers web sites. Too easy to blame the salt for parameter problems when we see a recall. Would not panic.
