Formaldehyde Found in Baby Furniture

For those of you that receive the dailygreen you may have read the article that references a report produced by Environment California - Toxic Baby Furniture: The Latest Case for Making Products Safe from the Start . If you haven't read it and have a baby or young child at home read on.

"Furnishings containing formaldehyde – a toxic chemical linked with allergies, asthma, and cancer – can contaminate indoor air within California homes. Babies and young children are particularly vulnerable to harm.

To evaluate the potential dangers children face, EnvironmentCalifornia Research & Policy Center purchased 21 products intended for use in a baby’s nursery and hired a professional laboratory to test them. We found that six of the products produced high levels of formaldehyde vapor. In particular, several brands of cribs and changing tables emit formaldehyde at levels linked with increased risk of developing allergies or asthma."

For those that are pregnant and have young children take a look at the brand of furniture you have.
