I have not tried the new stuff, as when I first heard o fthe change, it was a note that the old CAT number was discontinued, and so I stock up on MANY of the old 16 US fl Oz Bottles. Getting 1 Litre at a time seems more sane.

    Why should it be a problem that Kodak chemicals are made in Germany?, most of the high end Kodak cameras and lenses used to be made in Germany, and the German chemical industry is probably the best in the World going right back to the 19th century.

    It doesn't when the quality is concerned. But you'll have to check for possible changes in recipy or concentrations.

    Pictures of the bottles, anyone?
    Using film since before it was hip.

    I've recently seen the same packaging for the liquid Kodafix - the non-rapid, hardening fixer.

    That's news to me; in Montréal I haven't seen the square bottles yet.

    Kodak T-Max fixer which I believe is only available in Europe, also comes in a square bottle which looks similar or same to the above one posted by DaveT.

    And I'll toss in that the print on those labels is on the microscopic side, but on my second try yesterday, my aging eyes still did not detect any mixing instructions. I will eventually test and sort it out, but it would be nice if they gave at least a hint for reassurance.
