Have you bought a leather couch imported from China? Have you developed chronic dermatitis, skin burns, eye irritation and breathing difficulties? If so, your couch could be causing the symptoms. The international journal Allergy reports that a toxic fungicide found in sachets that are “embedded” into the cushions and structural components of leather couches are outgassing fumes that are making people sick, Especially common are terrible rashes. The powerful fungicide is dimethyl fumarate, and is used to keep mold from growing on the couches when in storage. A class action suit against the furniture makers is underway in Great Britain. At the time of writing it is unclear if the couches have found their way into the U.S. or Canadian markets, although if you are experiencing any symptoms and have recently bought a new leather couch, you should contact the health department.
