It is nice to see such a long conversation on this list no one saying anything about Polish jokes. Opps, guess I just did. Glad the product didn't come from College Station, TX. Bill Barber
She is responsible for all photographic materials (and distributors) for Europe.
So I can only recommend to keep in touch with her.
Maybe there was supposed to be an opaque insert inside the lid? You know, a disk of heavy paper or similar that is often inside lids?
It's usually there to act as a seal, but would also block light.

A likely scenario sounds like - Whether repackaged or not, it would have been done in darkness, once packaged gone onto the next chain of people who may not know that is a problem?
Good to know its salvageable.
I now have had contact with the FOMA factory (dana Hojna), and they are very political correct (read careful) in their writing, but as far as I can understand it, the mistake has happened at the factory - first time ever, this happened..
They express their condolances on my trouble, but they give no direct answer what to do now..
Except to take direct contact to the polish supplier..
Whether I get my money back, or I can get some fresh emulsion, or... time will tell, and I'll let you know.
Well, at least they were honest enough to admit their fault. And how were you doing with the emulsion so far? You wrote you managed to safe most of it by removing the top layer, or has that shown to be a non-viable option in the end?
Some form of refund, in the form of a few new ones at least equal to the amount you had to throw away, might be in order...

Cheaper? yes, a LOT!
bad quality?? not by a long shot...
EVERY factory can make a mistake (I once bought a pack of colour negatives 4x5 from FUJI, and after development, the content proved to be slides... Wrong content in the right package....)
