The Postal Service is reminding customers that metallic mercury and devices containing metallic mercury are always prohibited in the mail stream.

This includes antique items such as thermometers, barometers, blood pressure monitors and similar devices.

However, compact fluorescent lamps, which contain small amounts of mercury in vapor form, are mailable domestically.

This reminder is probably in response to recent Mercury contamination at a postal plant.
