Foam play mats banned in Europe

My local moms network picked up on recent news from Europe discussing the banning of foam puzzle mats due to the presence of a toxic material, formamide.

Article from EuroNews, “Belgium is to ban the sale of all foam puzzle mats for babies and toddlers, citing tests showing they contain a cancer-causing chemical. Formamides are used to soften the foam in the mats but are corrosive and can be deadly.
