    after posting this I'm not so sure I should have been a little more discrete as to which companies spout it was. from my understanding it only happened to a "batch" of spouts they produced. didn't mean to start a "fire" thread, but just figured I'd pass on what I understand to be the situation in the case it could help someone out! hopefully the issue gets resolved and I didn't cause too much panic.
    Awfully thankful for an understanding wife!

    I'll bet it's the white spouts from CDL....Last year sitting on couch making drops, sometimes I just lick the end of spout and press on tubing by hand since it's quicker, I noticed the white spouts leaving a weird aftertaste in my mouth compared to any other ones(clear, or black). To the point where I stopped doing it, it was a chemically type taste, never thought it would leach out, no more for me I have a hundred out of 2400 this year and 300 out of 2200 last year no issue I detected

    Wasn't going to jump into discussion until I read this post. A few years back I needed 5/16 connectors in a hurry,got them from CDL. Whenever I am doing repairs with the tubing tool,I usually have the fitting in my mouth while I am cutting the line or whatever. The connectors would leave a bad taste in my mouth,which I never experienced before with any fittings. I still use some CDL fittings from time to time,may have just been one bad production run

    Oh I'm not guessing, the taste was awful.....Put one of the white spouts in your mouth....U try it and tell me if it's guessing, lol.....They are for sure the culprit.
