Seachem Prime Fake Product?

BlackTiger

So I opened my seachem prime bottle I ordered from Amazon and it looks like there's a bunch of black flecks at the bottom of the bottle. Do you guys know what it is? Someone mentioned they contacted the manufacture and they are actually aware of the issue but they don't know what it is either lol. A lot of people been getting the same thing (black flecks) in their prime too. So I'll return mine and get the seachem safe instead. I pulled this image from Amazon for reference. Thanks.

agree with what everyone else said, but the reason why is that sulphur compounds precipitate into black solids.

you can search "sulphur reduction test black precipitate"

the sulphur compounds is also what makes Prime counteract the effects of nitrite poisoning.
