Default Bad Illumina Reagents

I've heard stories about a certain bad batch of reagents that caused some problems last december, has anybody heard about this? How can you tell if the reagents are working or not? Is there any signs that these reagents were used if you look at your quality readings?

Is this effectively fixed? I was told that this was still causing problems in the end of last year?
