*WASHINGTON* -- The U.S. Department of Transportations Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $54,000 civil penalty against the Carboline Company of St. Louis for allegedly violating the Hazardous Materials Regulations.

The FAA alleges that on Sept. 15, 2016, Carboline offered a cardboard box containing two pails of flammable paint to FedEx for overnight delivery from St. Louis to Elmendorf, Texas. On Sept. 16, 2016, the package was transported on a FedEx flight from Memphis to San Antonio.

Workers at the FedEx sorting center in San Antonio discovered the shipment was leaking. No clips had been used to secure the lids on the cans.

The FAA alleges that the shipment was not accompanied by a shippers declaration of dangerous goods, and was not properly classed, described, marked or labeled. The FAA further alleges Carboline failed to properly package the shipment to prevent a release of hazardous materials under normal transportation conditions.

Additionally, the FAA alleges Carboline failed to provide emergency response information with the shipment.

Carboline has 30 days from receipt of the FAAs enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
