    AFAIK, Ilford papers are fine with red safelights. Red is the only color of safelight I have used so far, and it's been fine with Ilford MGIV RC and Ilford MGWT FB. I have also used Slavich and Kentmere papers with red safelights without any problems. This pack of Agfa MCP (mentioned in the OP) is the only paper I've had problems with - and I'm not sure if the safelight is the culprit or if it's something else since I've read that other people have had problems with fogged Agfa papers.

    Red light is always safer than orange. Some papers tolerate orange, not all. If a paper is safe with orange, it is even safer with red. For cheap, very bright and non-aging red safelights have a look at red LED-spotlights.
    I'm currently using MCP I bought in NOV 2001. No fogging, but it was stored in the fridge.
    Regards,
