Our shipment of Kodak Rapid fixer 1 gal mix is BAD!!!!!!! After mixing it looks like milk and after only 20 rolls it turned dark gray.

This is the date and batch number...... 2020/02/20/10923

Contacted Kodak numerous times and have no response.

THANKS for the heads up. I need to mix a new batch tonight, hope it isn't this batch or I'm not developing.

2020/02/20.... like... does that mean it expired 17 months ago?

Manufacture date. 10923 batch number. A fair amount of Kodak items shipped now were made last year, not sure why, Kodak tells us nothing. I assume "Covid" delay.

I'll look at the current shipment and see what the numbers are as I have bought 2 Rap fix for my BW business and they are fine, nice and clear.

BTW, We got that batch of bad fix 3 months ago. Sorry I did not tell you guys sooner, my bad.

So this is crazy, no info at all on the new shipment. No manufacture date or batch number. But at least it's good to use.
