WASHINGTON – The Federal Aviation Administration is proposing a $168,000 civil penalty against Radiology Corporation of America, Inc., of Delray Beach, Fla., for allegedly violating Department of Transportation hazardous materials regulations.
The FAA alleges Radiology Corp. offered a fiberboard box to Delta Airlines in Atlanta as checked baggage, Feb. 6, 2010. The box housed a soldering iron containing liquid butane fuel, a flammable gas, which is a hazardous material. The shipment was not declared to contain hazardous materials.
Radiology Corp. allegedly offered the checked baggage for transportation by air when it was not packaged, marked, classed, described, labeled or in condition for shipment as required by regulations. Delta employees at the Atlanta airport discovered the shipment before it was loaded on an aircraft.
Radiology Corporation of America Inc., has 30 days from receipt of the FAA’s civil penalty letter to respond to the agency.
