Unhappy Bed made from MDF

Over the weekend I was assembling some bedroom furniture for my neighbors children. I notices the manufacturer used 2 sheets of unsealed 2 x 6 x 1/2 MDF as the base for the mattress. I know that MDF contains and emits formaldehyde. Should this be something to be concerned about or not. If anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like there has been some BIG changes in how this board has been put together in the last few years!

Maybe a good idea to also see the <A HREF="http://forum.doityourself.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=14">Wood, panaling forum on this site linked here</A>
