American Airlines workers at Miami International Airport discovered the shipment during checked baggage screening.
The FAA alleges J&J Tech Group offered through checked baggage a greater number of lithium batteries than were allowed by the regulations. Moreover, regulations prohibit offering these batteries as cargo on a passenger-carrying aircraft.
The FAA further alleges that the shipments were not accompanied by a shipper’s declaration of dangerous goods and were not properly classed, described, packaged, marked, labeled or in the proper condition for shipment. Additionally, the agency alleges J&J Tech Group failed to ensure that each of its employees received required hazardous materials training, and failed to provide emergency response information with the shipment.
J&J Tech Group has asked to meet with the FAA to discuss the case.
