Formaldehyde Fumes Felt in Indiana

By Armen Keteyian and Michael Rey

Terry Slone, a former employee of Gulf Stream Coach, spoke to CBS News outside of the factory in Indiana where he says the company built tens of thousands of travel trailers, part of a half a billion dollars contract with FEMA. As he told us in our story, he saw and smelled what he said were poor quality wood products coming into the factory on pallets and leaving the factory as cabinets and flooring in the travel trailers. He installed much of it himself., Slone also thinks he may have gotten sick from the same formaldehyde fumes that could also be making residents of the trailers in the Gulf sick.
