FedEx Shipped a High Radiation Package Without Knowledge

FedEx Shipped a High Radiation Package Without Knowledge

Quote:
ASHINGTON, Jan. 9 FedEx unwittingly carried a package from Paris to New Orleans last week that was emitting so much radiation that the recipient, a company that packages radiation sources for industrial testing, has been unable to get near enough to measure it directly.

But FedEx officials said the fact that the container passed undetected through the company's system did not indicate a security risk, because the shipper and the recipient were known to FedEx, allowing easy approval of the shipment.
