Mac App Store Refusal because of QTKit API's

I’m using JDK 8 update 60 and I just received an email from Apple saying that my application is using deprecated QTKit API’s.  I’ve reviewed Danno Ferrin’s JavaOne session from last year; it says that Update 40’s libjfxmedia_qtkit.dylib or Update 20’s libjfxmedia.dylib should be removed and are by the packager.  I have this line in my packager output from the packager, as you can see the libfxmedia.dylib is in my app and pkg.  Is this an oversight by the packager and the libfxmedia.dylib should also be removed from my packaged application?

The original message from ITunes Connect said that these API’s are referenced, when I questioned Apple as to what code was referencing these they said it was the JavaFX Media library.

ITunes Connect Responce:
