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.

Far from LA but not from formaldehyde...

I live far from Lousisiana, but not far from formaldehyde. You see, I live just two blocks from Plum Creek Lumber in Columbia Falls, Montana. In 2006 the plant released 464,250 pounds of formaldehyde through air emissions according to EPA records. That's 1,272 pounds a day! And the fiberboard plant is directly across from my 3rd grade son's school....

Please share my story.

Thank you,
