Default Toxic Smell After an Exhaustion Job!

My 96 Camry started to make booming noise, so I thought something was wrong
with the muffler. Goodyear (Gemini) checked the exhaustion system and
replaced the faulty exhaustion pipe underneath the chassis. I picked up the
car this afternoon and it was very quiet again. But I smellt some toxic odor
when driving back home. I couldn't drive without windows open! I went back
to the GY store and they told me that it was an odor from sealant they
applied to the pipe and the smell would go away soon. Is this normal or did
they do a poor job? I'm worried about my health! Thanks.

The only smell I've noticed after a part exhaust repair has been the paint
burning off the new muffler or pipe.

I haven't heard of any sealant which would give such a strong odor
problem,..but could be. I'd expect all odor to lessen and stop after a
couple of days driving.
