I got a standardized loading exceeding -1.0 for one of 34 dichotomous items using EFA procedure of Mplus. It seems extraordinary for me, and thus I'm not sure whether it's a correct estimation.

Factor loadings greater than one can occur. For example, this may be a result of negative residual variances or an otherwise misspecified model.

I remember somewhere in this discussion space a published article was referred on this topic. Would you please cite this article again here? Thanks.

Why does Mplus 7 no longer produce standardized factor loadings for EFA?

Not sure what you mean - EFA results are already standardized by the fact that we analyze a correlation matrix and fix factor variances at 1. And for ESEM, one can request standardization.
