Following the state of California’s lead, a bill is being proposed in Congress to set federal limits in the amount of formaldehyde allowed in products used in the home. The bill is being supported by both industry and environmental groups, although the Formladehyde Council, Inc., hasn’t taken a stand. Formaldehyde is a glue used in many products, from particleboard to plywood to medium density fiberboard. It is also added to permanant press clothing and draperies. There is evidence that some people can develop a sensitivity to formaldehyde. It has also been shown to cause cancer in animals and may cause cancer in humans, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
