A common carrier is bound to carry according to his profession, but he does not profess to carry goods dangerous to life and limb1. Whether a consignor of goods sends them by private or by common carrier, he impliedly warrants that the goods are fit to be carried in the ordinary way and are not dangerous, unless the carrier, when he accepts the goods for carriage, is aware by notice or otherwise that the goods are dangerous. Unless liability for breach of this implied warranty is excluded by the express terms of the contract
