    Anyone ever seen this before in a new, sealed needle? Have just opened the box to find some kind of residue in one of the needles.

    Emailed the manufacturer as i'd be concerned others in the batch are the same.

    I’ve not encountered that before. My pharmacist said that brand is hard to get hold of at the moment, perhaps there is a manufacturing issue.

    Yeah I had issues with Echo and Tesco getting these in. Now I get a few months worth all in one go so have had these since the start of April sitting unused, sealed in a desk drawer.

    Others look fine but a bit wary in case there's anything unseen in them!
