Just a thought .......... If mdf is so hazardous to a persons health , Why is it still on the market ?  Asbestos was taken off the market because of similar issues . Douglas

Hi Douglas,

A mask should be worn with MDF and all wood products to prevent sawdust in the lungs. Many woods contain dangerous elements in the saw dust, including MDF.

MDF is safe for toys except for teething toys. MDF isn't safe for teething toys, as is the same for many woods. The only wood that we are aware of that's safe for teething toys is Hardrock Maple.
