In March of 2015, plastic bags containing Beryllium parts that had been shipped from a storage area at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) to another site at LANL were found to be torn and not sealed.

Shippers and receivers of Beryllium parts should reach agreement on how parts will be packaged prior to shipping to reduce the probability of worker exposure and/or contamination spread. Shippers of Beryllium parts should conduct a careful inspection of packaging before shipping, and receivers should open packages in an appropriate area and carefully inspect upon receipt to ensure that damage did not occur during shipment.
