CBC News reports that Manitoba will begin testing nail salons for formaldehyde, toluene, acetone, and methyl methacrylate. This was prompted by complaints of strong chemical smells in a nail salon, where testing has confirmed the presence of formaldehyde in the air. It is still unknown whether the level of formaldehyde exceeded the allowable limit.
