Well, at a former employer of mine, we once received a bad batch of
Sony DVCAM-tapes. You wouldn't expect that from an brand-new unopened
box, but it did happen.
Best I would say, is to contact your supplier, and see if you can find
a tape-batch number, and see if there are more problems with that
particular batch. In our case they were very kind to replace the tapes
