Still wondering if it is back or Gone...

Just for fun I ordered some Neopan 400 from Both Freestyle and B&H.

The roll I just got from Freestyle was emuslion 281 006 with a 7/2014 expiry.
The film I got from B&H was Emuslion 281 003 with a 10/2013 date
late last year I got some pro packs with emulsion 281-005 and a 5/2014 date
Prior to that I got some emusion 281 002 with a 07/2013 date

Note the common batch number of 281. Anyone seen a fresher batch?
