You can also check your ASIN to find out if the product you are trying to sell is considered as Dangerous Goods or not. Just enter the ASIN and hit next and it will show you if its classified as a dangerous good or not.
If its classified as dangerous goods you will be needing some additional information to list that item (Only if approved in FBA Dangerous Goods Hazmat Program).
