ToxicTrailers.com is dedicated to providing information about formaldehyde poisoning, and advocating effective government regulations. The government spent more than $2 billion on FEMA trailers with hazardous levels of formaldehyde, and then dumped more than 103,000 former FEMA trailers known to be toxic on the market. The FEMA trailer tragedy exposed what is a widespread problem in RVs, mobile homes, modular buildings and even conventional buildings. If you are having burning eyes, congestion, sore throat, coughing, breathing difficulties, frequent sinus infections or rashes, and difficulties concentrating, you may have a formaldehyde problem.

Plywood made with Soyad, soy-based alternative too formaldehyde glue, is available at Home Depot at no extra cost.

This is very odd! The settlement checks on the lawsuit are a joke. But the settlement wasn’t with FEMA so why is the Better Business Bureau telling people to check with FEMA? http://www.wwltv.com/news/FEMA-sends-extra-settlement-checks-to-plaintiffs-in-formaldehyde-suit-230909371.html NEW ORLEANS -- Debra Coleman was among tens of thousands of Gulf Coast residents who joined class action lawsuits against manufacturers of FEMA trailers delivered in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The plaintiffs claimed dangerous levels of formaldehyde caused health complications. Coleman said she and her husband spent more than a year in a FEMA trailer as they rebuilt their Gentilly home. "I had asthma and it would get worse in the trailer. My husband would get headaches. His nose would run in that trailer," said Coleman. The manufacturers eventually settled. Many of the plaintiffs recently received their settlement checks. Coleman's check arrived last Friday. The amount was $33.02 "I'm not disputing that," Coleman said. "I know it was a class action thing and the lawyers were going to get a lot of the money." The concern Coleman has is the second batch of settlement checks she and her husband received. The information appeared to be correct -- the same dollar amount, the same address, the same first name. But the last names were wrong. "I'm Debra Coleman. The second check was to Debra MacDonald. My husband got his check. The first one was to him, Clarence Coleman. But the second one was to a Clarence McDaniel," said Coleman. She said she deposited the check made out to her with no issue but was unsure of what to do with the second round of checks she and her husband received. She tried calling the phone number on the back of the check but says she got no reply. Coleman said she knows of at least a dozen other people who joined the class action lawsuit who also received two checks. "It's rather odd that they would receive a second check with the wrong last name. Something is going on here obviously," said Cynthia Albert of the Better Business Bureau. Albert said she's unsure if the multiple issuing of checks is an administrative mistake or part of a scam. Fake checking scams, she said, are fairly common but often entail much larger amounts of money. While the checks involved may seem insignificant, Albert said possible mistakes on a mass scale can add up. "That could be a tremendous amount of money, and that's why I think anybody receiving something like this should report it immediately," said Albert. The Better Business Bureau urges people to call FEMA directly to report issues with settlement checks. It also reminds people to avoid giving out personal information when dealing with unknown entities. FEMA did not respond to request for comment.

Re the video Formaldehyde = Dead Pets, Sick People on this website, had this same thing not happened to my family in our new residence I would have said it was bs. But after my dogs became seriously ill on the new carpets and my son and I lost our health and continue to battle our toxic systems over 2 years later. Its a nightmare you cant wake from.

The article just proves that a narcissistic womanizer who lies to his constituents, cheats on his wife and puts multinational corporations over his patriotic duty to his country can thrive in the Senate as long as he has the chemical industry’s money and the Fox News spin machine behind him!!! Paul http://www.dcbureau.org/201306108685/natural-resources-news-service/david-vitter-the-republican-senate-leader-on-the-environment.html#more-8685 David Vitter: The Republican Senate Leader on the Environment By Rose Ellen O'Connor, on June 10th, 2013 Natural Resources News Service Eight leather chairs on the podium in the ornate Senate hearing room sat empty as Democrats took their seats on the dais. It was May 9 and the Environment and Public Works Committee had been scheduled for days to consider the nomination of Gina McCarthy to head the Environmental Protection Agency. ....For years, if you asked environmentalists to name the worst senator for their causes, most would have said, “James Inhofe” (R-OK). He had Vitter’s job on the committee for years and left in November 2012 for a similar position on the Committee on Armed Services. Inhofe was much more outspoken than Vitter on his views regarding the environment and climate science. He believes climate change is a hoax. But both come from states whose largest employers and contributors are also their largest polluters. So once again the leading Republican in the Senate on environmental issues is the champion of the petroleum and chemical industries. And in the Senate, that means little will be done to increase enforcement of environmental regulations or the power of the EPA.
