Why does my Amana refrigerator have bad tasting ice (from beginning) with white particles?

The bad taste has been happening since I brought this refrigerator home. I just didn't realize it was the ice for the longest time. It tastes like a chemical in the ice. The smell gets on your hands if you handle the ice. It gets on frozen food boxes if left in there for a while. What is causing this? I'm so frustrated. I installed a filter for the water. It helped a little, but only with fresh ice. Ice that sits for a while gets the smell. It's like a coating. I'm convinced it's a chemical. Can it be Freon? I don't know what Freon smells like, but this is driving me bonkers. Currently, I'm allowing two new cubes to melt in a clear glass to see what particles are in there, and already I see these white flakes in there. What could this be? And how can I solve it?
