About ToxicTrailers.com

ToxicTrailers.com was launched after Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when the government spent more than $2 billion on FEMA trailers with high levels of formaldehyde that sickened thousands of people. The FEMA trailer tragedy exposed what is a widespread problem in RVs, mobile homes, modular buildings and even conventional buildings that use pressed wood products. Unfortunately, as we approach the tenth anniversary of Katrina, formaldehyde regulations are not being enforced in the U.S., and people's health is at risk. 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.

Congress demanding answers

In case anyone would like to take a look, the Oversight Committee sent a letter to FEMA last Tuesday, reiterating prior requests that the Committee made. The letter explained that compulsory process would be implemented if documents were not provided by May 29, 2007. I have included a link below.



Erik C. Jones
Committee on Oversight and Government Reform

NOTE: The oversight committee months ago requested information from FEMA about the problem with formadelhdye in FEMA trailers, but FEMA has withheld key data.
