FAA Proposes Fining Amazon $350,000 For Hazardous Package

Alright, which one of you jackasses ordered Amazing! LIQUID FIRE from Amazon? The funny part about this story is that you can still buy the stuff (it's drain cleaner) from Amazon for $33.88....plus $350,000 for shipping and handling. wink

The FAA alleged that on Oct. 15, 2014, Amazon sent a UPS package with a one-gallon container of "Amazing! LIQUID FIRE," a corrosive drain cleaner for transportation by air from Louisville, Kentucky, to Boulder, Colorado. The package leaked and nine UPS employees who came into contact with the box reported feeling a burning sensation and were treated with a chemical wash, the FAA said. The FAA said the shipment was improperly packaged, not accompanied by a declaration for dangerous goods and not properly labeled to indicate the hazardous contents.
