Nov. 26 (Bloomberg) — FedEx Corp. is looking for a missing shipment of radioactive rods used by hospitals to calibrate CT scanning equipment.

The rods were sent this week to Memphis, Tennessee, from Fargo, North Dakota, Sandra Munoz, a spokeswoman for the Memphis-based company, said today in a telephone interview. There’s no indication the rods were stolen, she said.

“There’s a distinct possibility they were misplaced either in our facility or even in the recipient’s facility,” Munoz said.

Three shipments of radioactive rods were sent, each in its own metal cylinder, known as a pig, which is about 10 inches long and weighs 20 pounds. Two of the containers arrived at their destination, which Munoz declined to identify.
