Multiple toner cartridges in checked luggage?

I need to take 4 toner cartridges (I weighed them, 19 oz. each) on a domestic United flight. I know they were banned back in 2010, then restricted to 16 oz., but I am not sure exactly what the policy is now. tsa.gov website says I can bring them with no mention of restrictions on quantity or weight of the cartridge. Toner cartridges are not mentioned at all on united.com's baggage "dangerous goods" page.

You answered your own question. "tsa.gov website says I can bring them with no mention of restrictions on quantity or weight of the cartridge."

Sometimes Google searches put you into threads that are years old but matter to folks who are trying to get some info (also noting poster is 1st time as well).
