Blankets with Formaldehyde
Australia and New Zealand are recalling blankets that are made in China, according to this report. The blankets - the Superlux brand variety - are sold by Australian-based Charles Parson and are found to contain high levels of formaldehyde, a chemical used for embalming corpses. This follows a report that the New Zealand government has found the same chemical in Chinese-made woolen and cotton clothes.
