On September 28, 2011, Greif announced that the usage of their Type D bags marked as Sun-Stat are unsafe for use in an ungrounded manner. A notice has been posted on their website that “The Sun-Stat Type D bag is currently under technical review and cannot be ordered until further notice”. In a letter also posted on their website, they have advised all users to stop filling or discharging any of these bags immediately.
