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.

David,

Let Mark McCormick have a look at it, there are some odd things happening with dark storage and Mark hinted at that in another message in this forum some time ago. Epson inks and media are not the nirvana of inkjet materials some think they are but in this case it can be a weird phenomenon that has to be researched better before inkjet media can be judged.
