Kent Marine Carbon Recall
Posted locally by my LFS.

Hello Everyone,
I couldn't really find a category for this so I chose this one - move it elsewhere if you feel it should be moved.

Central Aquatics sent out a notice today alerting anyone using Kent Marine Reef Carbon that was produced between December 5, 2011 and February 8, 2012 to remove it from your aquarium and return it to the place of purchase immediately. Kent Marine (as with MANY central aquatics products) has allowed another Chinese import to make it to our aquariums without being tested or at least monitored for quality assurance.

Though we don't really recommend this particular carbon we do sell it and have several customers that buy it regularly. Take it out of your aquarium RIGHT AWAY - IT CONTAINS HEAVY METALS THAT WILL KILL CORALS AND INVERTEBRATES. Follow this thread to read the exact recall notice sent out today:

Alert your fellow aquarists locally and elsewhere right away folks
