Counterfeit airbags are shipped without regard to public safety. The Department of Transportation has classified airbags as Class 9 dangerous goods, and as such they must be classified, documented, packaged, marked and labeled in accordance with the Hazardous Materials Regulation. The transportation of airbags without legally-required warnings of the hazardous material contained in airbag shipments pose a safety risk to all persons transporting and handling the unmarked hazardous materials.
