Finding API | Link to item with affiliate info now refers to "similar items" page with broken images.

Hello. **findItemsAdvanced** (possibly including other finding API methods) requests with affiliate data now return items with **viewItemURL** that refers not to the description page of the item but instead to the "similar to item" page and all images of item are not available *see the attachment* ![alt text][1].
The issue was reproduced on multiple devices.
This issue started to occur at least since August 31. Example: 1. We make a **findItemsAdvanced** request with affiliate tracking id 5338651124. 2. Response search result contains [this][2] item and it's viewItemUrl = https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=2&toolid=10044&campid=5338651124&customid=≶eo=1&vectorid=229466⁢em=133502578544 3. A customer clicks on the link. And then:
Expected behavior (before August 31): The customer ends up on the item description page and all item images are loaded. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Verizon-Fios-Quantum-Gateway-G1100-Wireless-Wi-Fi-Router-FiOS-G1100-Dual-Band-/133502578544?_trksid=p2054897.l4275 Actual behavior (after August 31): The customer ends up on the "similar to item" page where images could not be loaded. https://www.ebay.com/itm/like/133502578544 [1]: /storage/temp/2991-annotation-2020-09-02-181441.png [2]: https://www.ebay.com/itm/133502578544
