Just received Bibler Eldorado tent and I notice a strange, almost shit like smell coming from the yellow material. What is going on? Is this normal?

The tent is brand new, it must be the waterproofing material they use, but I've never experienced anything like this so it's really strange and I wanted to see if anyone else noticed it?

When I got my Fitzroy it smelled weird too...just like that newish, rubber type factory smell. A couple nights outside and it should go away. But if it smells like actual shit...then maybe Mike's right!
