Company Owner Fined $3,000 for Shipping Improperly Labeled Hazmat

Raviv Aizen, owner of Maryland Core, Inc., a company in Baltimore, MD, that recycles late-model automobile parts, was fined $3,000 by a U.S. District Court judge in Baltimore for shipping automobile airbag modules via ground freight without properly labeling them as hazardous material. The modules contain cylinders of compressed gas capable of discharging with explosive force. Aizen did not label the contents to avoid paying the higher shipping costs of such materials.
