I think you're right, John.  The plastic container likely is the culprit.  I have a background in rubber and I know how nasty that can be.  Many of the same chemicals are also found in plastic.

Here is what Red River says about storing prints in plastic:

3) If you are going to store prints in plastic bags or sleeves, look for plastic material that is made from biaxially oriented polypropylene. Avoid using any materials that contain polyethylene or plasticizers which can cause rapid yellowing of your paper.
