So, I'm looking for a new vacuum cleaner and would like one with HEPA filtration.  I've been reading about PBDEs and all of the junk that can be in our homes, and a HEPA filter sounds great.  HOWEVER, PBDEs can be in electronics.... I would assume that a vacuum cleaner can be made with PBDEs as well?  So how can I find a PBDE-free vacuum cleaner!?  Or do we all just go around vacuuming up PBDEs with our HEPA filters while spreading more PBDEs as they fly off of the vacuum cleaner itself..... sigh.
