When fighting it in the Tainted Shoreline and wearing Containment suit it can turn your containment suit pants into unsealed pants, or containment suit top into an unsealed top, only when you have all three pieces equipped.
Note: This also applies to wearing the infested containment top, infested containment pants and infested containment helmet. You'll only get the same unsealed parts as a result, though, so be careful.

The sludge squeezes tight around your legs. You hear an ominous hiss as the bottom of your containment suit loses its seal.

The sludge lunges at you and bears you to the ground. You hear an ominous hiss as the top of your containment suit loses its seal.

You've gained x duration of Slags Poisoning.
