CDC tests confirm FEMA trailers are toxic
Agency to relocate Gulf Coast residents because of formaldehyde fumes

NEW ORLEANS - More than two years after residents of FEMA trailers deployed along the Mississippi Gulf Coast began complaining of breathing difficulties, nosebleeds and persistent headaches, U.S. health officials announced Thursday that long-awaited government tests found potentially hazardous levels of toxic formaldehyde gas in both travel trailers and mobile homes provided by the agency.

I lived in a FEMA trailer for about 2 months, there was so much formaldehyde smell it would choke you for the about the first week. After that you get used to it but you could still smell it. Pretty nasty stuff.

I sure as hell don't know why, but it smelled like 7th grade science class when you had to dissect a frog, only about 3X stronger....I actually did have a slight headache from being there the first day or two. Someone told me a reason why, but I don't remember the explanation at the moment...

There you go, blaming the Republicans again. Can't you see this is all a conspiracy?
