During loading, a package of recreational fireworks (1.4S category) containing small detonating peas produced in an Asian country was exposed to a shock: about ten peas popped in succession yet without triggering any splattering of the type that could spread fire. The packaging was not deformed in any way, yet did show signs of blackening. The same kind of accident happened a week prior (ARIA 22616) ; experts in the field have suggested strengthening quality controls as part of the product acceptance protocol, given its influence on subsequent transport potential.
