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.

poisoned by formaldehyde in CalEPA building

Hello,

I had worked at the CalEPA bldg in Sacramento for several years and ended up having to find a new job due to formaldehyde exposure there. The management would do nothing about it. I have lots more info, including some air sampling data, and contacts of several of the 100+ employees that experienced breathing difficulties, migraines, and skin rashes due to the toxic exposure to formaldehyde and other VOCs in that building. I hope you contact me. This needs to end. (use of toxics in bldg materials) Thank you so much.

Nancy

P.S. I even "won" a workers comp case against them.
