Was your gear open to air for an extended period of time? Thats the only way I could see bacteria infecting the gear.
I've heard of guys heating the gear up to kill bacteria but I don't know how sensitive to temp they would be in terms of damaging the gear.

i have heard of tornel being contaminated before a couple of times. you never really know how its being made. take a 12 pack of corona,line them up and see if they look the same. and if they are off imagine what meds could be off
probably something else and not gear but if it happens again i would get rid of it.
