Default Panasonic FC series - leaking? quality gone?

New Panasonic FC series cap I got from Digikey, tossed it in the parts bin a year ago. Today, I saw the leads have green corrosion on both leads at the bung?!
It this leaking, yet never used? EEUFC1C392
The datasheet says: "This Series is no longer available for purchase in the country of Japan."

Gosh, is FC's quality has gone to china?
