Other complementary stainless steel skus include a 2-pc cheese knife set, a 4-pc
spreader set, and an 8-pc cheese knife & marker set.
Suspicion hovered around chemical by-product emissions from carpet backing or adhesives, including something called 4-phenylcyclohexene (4-PC).
And although 4-PC is the chemical most responsible for the "new carpet" smell many find irritating, CPSC exonerates it as a danger to health.
Although Anderson Labs have not isolated all the offending chemicals in the test samples, one that appears in many of the carpets is a volatile organic compound called 4-PC
A University of Arizona study, ironically tucked inside the EPAs file cabinets, suggested a possible cause: the new-carpet smell, caused by 4-phenylcyclohexene (4-PC
) in the glue that holds carpet fibers together.
