LOS ANGELES (CN) - U.S. Greenfiber, Pulte Home Corp. and Quality Interiors endanger public health by making and installing "wet blown cellulose insulation," known as Cocoon insulation, which promotes the growth of mold, a class-action complaint claims in Superior Court.
The complaint, filed by Schimmel & Parks on behalf of "thousands" of homeowners in California, accuses the defendants of "unlawful, unfair, and misleading business practices in the residential insulation industry". It seeks disgorgement and punitive damages. It claims the defective insulation, made by Greenfiber, is particularly noticeable in bathrooms and around bathroom fixtures.
