Error in EPS-8

I saved my file as EPS-8 and now cannot open it.  

It says: "can't open the illegal illustration. The illustration contains an illegal operand. Offending operator: eps_metadata_stream"



Does anyone else see this issue in Illustrator CC?  Any help would be appreciated.
(I use Illustrator CC)

kathy, Can you still open Ai file? If so, try save it in eps8 again?
BTW you should expand all effects and flatten transparency

jaroslav, thank you!! The is no effects and no transparency in this illustration. I read on couple of sources that it can be a result of using some fonts. But the is no any typing either. Everything is so complicated.  I was able to open .ai file, but I do not want this happen again with eps8.

You can try to outline all the text object or save file in eps10 or epsCS file format.
Why do you need eps8?
Do you use any plug-ins or new Ai features like rounded corners eg.?

jaroslav, no I did not use plug-ins or new Ai features. I need eps8 for micro stock. I already recreated from an AI file and saved it in eps8. Everything is fine now, but I have no idea what happened the first time. Thank you very much for your kind assistance.

Thank you verymuch, jaroslav! 
I read somewherethat eps8 is a better format because not all buyers have the ability to open
eps10.  
I downloadedseveral files yesterday on Shutter and most of the eps8 were rejected (corrupt
or will not open properly).All of the eps10did not have any problems.  
So, I guess I have to make a decision in favorof eps10 although there is a risk involved of losing some potential buyers.
