Federal health officials have released the first brand-specific information about which trailer homes provided to Gulf Coast hurricane victims had the highest levels of toxic fumes. Trailers made by Gulf Stream, Keystone, Pilgrim and Forest River each showed higher levels of formaldehyde fumes than the other brands. A study released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found air samples from those trailers were more than four times what is found in newer U.S. homes. Last month, CDC officials urged that Gulf Coast hurricane victims be moved out of their government-issued trailers as quickly as possible after tests found toxic levels of formaldehyde fumes.
