    • Alternative Title:
      Formaldehyde levels in FEMA-supplied trailers ; Interim CDC findings ;
    • Description:
      "This interim report of a CDC study provides information about formaldehyde levels in a random sample of FEMA-supplied occupied travel trailers, park models, and mobile homes still being used as of December 2007 and January 2008 as temporary shelter for residents of the U.S. Gulf Coast region displaced by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Additional analyses on this study; and additional peer review of the study, its results, and conclusions; are ongoing. A final report on this study will be published in the spring 2008. In addition, other studies related to the health of persons displaced by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and to formaldehyde levels in travel trailers, park models, and mobile homes are ongoing. However, this interim report suggests that formaldehyde levels in many of the travel trailers, park models, and mobile homes (geometric mean 77 parts per billion [ppb] across all types with many levels higher than this average) are higher than typical U.S. background levels (e.g., approximately 10-30 ppb in indoor air). Therefore, actions should be taken now to limit further exposures to residents. (For specific information, see the report sections below on recommendations to residents and recommendations to public officials)."
