I know of a similar issue with counterfeit parts (diodes) that entered the supply chain of major US telecom vendor in the early/mid 2000s (merged & bought twice since).
As a UK based engineer I had to visit our UK and Ireland staging areas and inspect products waiting to be sent to customer sites, as the company didn't know when (time frame) they were used in the manufacturing process.
BTW, these diodes were used in the -48v dc power circuits and would/could fail spectacularly! Hence icon.
