I am certain that there are thousands of these units located all over that have the same level of formaldehyde. Why would the so called FEMA trailers be manufactured using different materials. Anyplace where there is particle board and plywood there is formaldehyde and if it was bad, which it may well be, then who let it be used so extensively in the first place?
These units could be a Godsend for Haiti because given the level of destruction and the abject poverty it will be years before housing can be provided for the citizens there. if ever it can be.

We're gonna send them over for 3 Months, let everyone get settled in, and then take them all back. Just like we did after Katrina. I mean Latrina...

Formaldehyde is in the glue and it disapates as it dries. By now the formaldehyde levels would be so low that they wouldn't be a factor. It's like the new car smell, it just doesn't last that long.
Formaldehyde was used for years before we became aware it was real bad for some people. Millions of kids worked with it in school and few had any problems as a result.
If the people in Haiti have a choice between tents and trailers that once smelled like formaldehyde I'm sure their going to choose the trailers. I would.
