Officials Warn of Risky Levels of Formaldehyde


Hurricane Victims Encouraged to Vacate Mobile Homes - Posted 02/14/08

 

 

NEW ORLEANS - MSNBC staff and news service reports - U.S. health officials are urging that Gulf Coast hurricane victims be moved out of their government-issued trailers as quickly as possible after tests found toxic levels of formaldehyde fumes.

 

Fumes from 519 trailer and mobile homes in Louisiana and Mississippi were — on average — about five times what people are exposed to in most modern homes, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
