FAA Proposes $82,500 Penalty Against Little Rock Company for Hazmat Violations

The Federal Aviation Administration, Southern Region, has
proposed to assess an $82,500 civil penalty against J&M
Products Corp. of Little Rock, Ark., for allegedly violating
Department of Transportation hazardous materials regulations.

FAA alleges that J&M Products improperly offered eight fiberboard
boxes containing 14.25 liters of denatured alcohol, a flammable
liquid, to UPS for transportation by air. UPS ground handling
employees at Louisville, Ky. discovered the shipment leaking.

J&M Products offered the hazardous materials for transportation
when they were not packaged, labeled, marked, classed,
described, documented, or in condition for shipment as required
by regulations. J&M Products also failed to ensure employees
were trained to properly package and handle hazardous materials,
and did not make available at all times the required emergency
response information.

J&M Products has 30 days from receipt of the FAA notice to
submit a reply to the agency. This announcement is made in
accordance with the FAA’s practice of releasing information to the
public on newly issued enforcement actions involving penalties of
$50,000 or more.
