5DMKII color artifacts problem

I'm shooting 1080p 25 fps PAL with Canon EOS 5DMKII. I've had the camera for several months, and I've not experienced any such problems before, but now I'm occasionally getting color artifacts such as in the below screen shot (notice the ventilation grill on the door):

Any idea what might cause this?

Check out your video card , may need to upgrade, but, the odd grill and horizontal line patterns are at times even on commercial broadcast, it is no big thing. I have used the Canon 5D Mark II HD 1920 x 1080p for two and a half years and a 3ccd Panasonic , you may get the odd hiccup ?

Ps. You could edit this out in Premiere Pro ?

Here's the fix for the Miore problem. This plugin was just created for Final Cut Pro.

Thanks, all!

The FCP plug-in sounds interesting, however as it's restricted to non-commercial use, I won't be able to use that. I guess it's a question of being aware of the prolem and perhaps occasionally trying to correct such problem footage in AE etc.
