Pressure treated wood

Anyone else having an issue with the new pressure treated wood?
I have a pile of left over or given to me 4 X 4's, 4 X 6's and 2 X 8's that had been sitting on the ground with the 2 X's on top for less than 6 months.
When I went to use them all the larger lumber was eaten up with termites and fungus and where mush, the 2 X's where covered with fungus and already so weak they were useless.
All the larger timbers had the tag on them stating "below ground rated".

Re: Pressure treated wood

I'd like to see if the mill would stand behind the 30 or 50 year guarantee.
