Brand new ifixit battery replacement smells like nail polish

I just got a replacement battery from ifixit and when opening the package it smells intensely of nail polish. I can't find any liquid or holes on the battery and after removing the battery it doesn't smell nearly as much as before but the bag still smells quite strongly. Is this a faulty battery or is it just from manufacturing conditions?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

That smell usually indicates a leaking battery. I would inspect very carefully.
