Indiana Firms Linked To Toxic Katrina Victim Trailers

Last updated on Tuesday, March 4, 2008

(UNDATED) - The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention is reporting that three Indiana firms were responsible for making toxic trailers for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

The highest levels of formaldehyde were found in emergency trailers made by Gulf Stream Coach-based in Nappanee; Pilgrim International in Middlebury and Goshen-based Keystone R.V.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency ordered a study after scientists linked poor health cited by some trailer residents to toxic levels of formaldehyde measured inside the emergency homes.
