We had a class action suit some years ago over insulation that was giving off formaldehyde.  Sounds similar.

most of our homes are stick framed .... builders don't use trusses....many want a walkup attic....cheap space to finish and it adds to the square footage....

good grief Belinda - I'm going to read your blog - I have no idea about this but will reach out to some other folks around here that primarily sell new construction and will also see if builder reps are willing to admit they even use those trusses. Perhaps you've become the 'canary in the coal mine'

Belinda this is a good place to ask this question. After reading your blog post about it it did get to wondering if this issue is more wide spread than we know.

Thanks for weighing in everyone.  It seems that this must be an isolated issue which is good to know.  I will keep everyone posted as to progress.  Of course, there isn't much online about this as you can imagine.
