Same here with lot #1013113. Just checked my powder. The lid was totally rusted through. It was gone. I had it in bag. when I pulled it out it was like no top at all. I couldn’t even find the lid. It seemed to have deteriorated. I went on line and just found out about the recall. What to do now?

Simple question: I bought my 8 pounder about 4 years ago but has NO marking (numbers as stated). Looks and smell normal to me. Should I be concerned?……Thanks!

seen the recall notices in a gun shop where i buy my powder came home check my stock of 4007ssc. What a surprise did I find the 1lb that I had reloaded with in January was in a state of deterioration ( strong ammonia smell, the metal cap is almost rusted through, red residue in powder ) and this is from LOT # 1013113 which is not listed will be contacting IMR ASAP

A few years ago I bought four one pound cans of 4007ssc for use on 22-250 with heavy (77 gr.) bullets in a short twist Savage with short twist & heavy barrel. I used up one pound but still have the other three. They aren’t marked with the lot numbers you show here. Two are marked 1062707 and the other has no lot number marking at all. By my recollection they were bought at the same time in the same store but I’m not positive of that . Should I be concerned?
