Yes, that is a fact. Now, there are raintite EMT fittings available, by a few mfg in this area (NJ). You will notice the major differences between the 'old' and the new. I don't mean the new are gold plated or anything like that, but they are definitley improved, and carry the UL listing/label.
Quite a few EC's got caught with the 'old' ones, and yes, it did take some time for the new ones to get into the supply stream.
