A new email rumor claims that Procter & Gamble's Mr. Clean Magic Eraser cleaning pads contain formaldehyde and therefore pose a health hazard, especially to young children.  True or false?

Your info. does say that there are small traces of formaldehyde in the product, so what if a child or pet were to lick the surface these were cleaned with? What if their immune system cannot handle this chemical?

formaldehyde is in make-up, finger polish & 1000s of things- though I don’t my children lick them or cleaning products either. it’s not limited to embalming… Ooo, I wouldn’t let me dog even lick a sink sponge– they are dirtier than your toilet.

PEOPLE NEED TO KEEP THEIR CLEANING THINGS LOCKED UP AWAY FROM CHILDREN AND STOP BLAMING THE COMPANIES WHO MAKE THINGS FOR THEIR US TO CLEAN. ALL CLEANING THINGS SHOULD BE LOCKED UP AWAY FROM CHILDREN.

You’re absolutely right! Parents need to take more responsibility upon themselves!
