by Karli Sharrow

New home buyers in several states, including Colorado and Minnesota, report odors from high levels of formaldehyde contained in Weyerhaeuser brand floor trusses.  Weyerhaeuser estimates that up to 2,200 homes could be impacted, all of which may need their floor joists removed and replaced in order to get the noxious chemicals out of the homes.  The defective trusses were reportedly manufactured by Weyerhaeuser between December 2016 and June 2017 and represented about $9M worth of revenue for the company.
