When you have a little kid you always give a second thought as to whether this piece of clothing, or that apple or that toy is qualitative as possible to buy. Even picking a floor mat for a kid can be tiresome. It is natural as this is one of the items that your child will keep in contact with for a long time, so you should be 100% sure that it does not pose a threat for the child’s health.
Children’s health department in China carried out safety tests on the floor mats, produced by known companies in China. A total of 128 children’s mats were tested. Sadly, all of them contained harmful substances, like formamide. 38 mats had a formamide content of more than 200 mg/kg, which is allowed in the European Union and Taiwan. 6 mats had a formamide content of more than 1000mg/kg and one mat had the highest formamide content that reached 2206 mg/kg, which is more than 11 times the standard limit. As babies crawl all over these mats and often chew and suck on them, they are at a risk of getting skin and mouth irritation, and even lung infection since they are inhaling chemical substances that the mat is releasing.
