Battery Question

I had a new experience last week.  I was using 3rd party batteries (as I have for a number of years) and had just re-charged them.  On loading into the extended grip (i.e. two batteries) I got a message: "Communication Failure with Battery" it then asked if my batteries were Canon Batteries to which I said no.  Then it said, it couldn't guarentee operability of the camera.

Since they were the only batteries I had, and it seemed the camera worked okay (and I've used these batteries for years) I just went ahead and shot.  The camera powered up fine, and the functions seemed unimpaired.  The only thing I noticed was that the camera would not display the remaining battery power.

Then just now I pulled the batteries, reinserted them and all appears to be fine.

Thoughts?
