Your Forester has aired out for 15 years. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

..now the real question is, does flatulence reduce the fire retardancy of the cushions??

For a definitive answer burn one of the cushions.

@Karmon, I think it actually introduces methane to the mix and increases the flammability. The total increase is proportional to the number of beans ingested. Flatulence riddled cushions need to be defarted or disposed of.

Methane dissipates quickly (otherwise cow-barns would explode if a farmer smoked!).

Haha, that was funny. (Laughing at 1 year old fart jokes).
