[Histonet] Zinc Formalin

Our formalin supplier mistakenly shipped us pre-filled containers containing zinc formalin instead of 10% NBF.  Before I noticed this, three cases had been distributed throughout the hospital (most likely to Surgery).  So, how is this going to affect my tissue?  Is there any post-treatment (such as removing mercury pigment on B-5 fixed tissue) that I need to perform?

Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.
