Needleless Connector debris


Hello, has anyone had an issue with debris in the end of the IV tubing right near the needleless connector?  This is the first time I have heard of this.  I did not see the original item and unable to see exactly what they saw in the photos but it was reported as "greenish debris" in the tubing.  We are contacting the manufacturer but in the meantime I am asking if anyone else had experienced this with their connector.
