Possibly fake batteries, but not stated that way by B&H:

Confirmed by Nikon to be counterfeit batteries:

Article also has info on telling fakes from the real thing.

Some other batteries, as well.

Wow, that's worrisome that someone as big as B&H was duped but, at least, they are doing the responsible thing in shipping out new ones.

Why isn't B & H buying directly from Nikon?? They must be getting these fakes from another source.

Exactly.  The primary reason I have always purchased my CF and SD cards from B&H is because I "knew" I was getting the real deal and not some jack-leg fake.  Looks like my trust may have been misplaced.
