May my powder Rest In Peace

I just performed the coup de grace on all my 1lbrs of accurate 2495 and 4064 per the recall. Only one keg showed any of the signs, with a higher acidic smell. No memorial service will be held.
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.

I just saw the recall this morning. Hope my 8lb of 4350 isn't bad

I had one canister of 4350 that was an odd color and had an 'off' smell.
But, they paid me for three and I'll be dumping all three.

I've been trying to decide how to dispose of it. I think I'm going to burn it.
I'm not a tree hugger, but I am environmentally conscious enough that I don't like the idea of dumping it on the lawn. (Some of the chemicals present can be pretty hard on aquatic species.)

For those wondering, we're referring to Western Powders' recent recall of pretty much all pre-2016 lots of Accurate 2495, 4064, and 4350.
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
