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.

Government has different rules for Toyota than FEMA trailers

Unsafe Recall~~Let's compare the Toyota gas pedal & brake with the sale of tens of thousands of FEMA trailers:
FEMA has done nothing inside the trailers to fix the problem. Therefore, why should Toyota have to do anything either.
FEMA just has to stick a sticker on the outside saying "Not to be used for housing". So why not let Toyota just stick a sticker saying "Not fit for driving" [fair is fair].
FEMA requires that the new owner sign a waiver. So, Toyota should just have all the car owner sign a waiver also, and save all that money.
FEMA or GSA is putting these trailers back out on the market unfixed. Besides formaldehyde, many have problems with mold and LP gas lines leaks that can cause fires and explosions.
Why do we have one standard for car companies and another for the government???
Why is a recall not the same for everyone?
