Interesting class action suite, Roy.
I have been waiting makers of spray foam to be held accountable for +5 years now.
Makers of Spray-Foam Insulation Named in Lawsuits, Federal lawsuits claiming that spray-polyurethane foam insulation is toxic and can sicken those who live in houses where it has been installed are pending in more than a half-dozen states as lawyers deal with an “avalanche” of complaints, a Florida attorney says.

Reported by CTV, Canadians have had success in 2015. A class-action lawsuit by homeowners against RetroFoam of Canada Inc., installers and suppliers of the product, and the Canadian government has been settled for $13 million. Under the settlement, each of the approximately 770 members of the suit gets roughly $10,000.

Looks you are correct many do not have Fire Detectors or Carbon Monoxide Detectors .

At least small retirement homes can now get government (i.e. Taxpayer) funding to install/upgrade fire sprinklers in Ontario http://www.680news.com/2017/10/11/on...ement-homes-2/

A similar system has been in place for all residential properties, in the U.S., since 2015.....Alas, our government apparently don't think Residential properties are that much pf a concern. http://www.nfpa.org/news-and-researc...-grant-program

The two caes you cite Robert are for different products. Both lawsuits are completely different from the $20 back deal mentioned by Roy in his OP.

The $20 back deal was because of a class action lawsuit on price fixing.

The SPF Class action was launched at the manufacturers of SPF, but as was in the case of UFFI identified to be an installation issue.

Once again, it is poor training, and installation practices that are tarring all SPF products with the same brush.

As per the first article you cited "“According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, after SPF is correctly applied and cured, it is considered to be relatively inert, which means the chemicals are finished reacting. "

The second article you cited was against Retro-Foam. This is a straight up illegal use of UFFI in Canada after the ban was put in place. Nothing to do with SPF.

Hope this puts the record straight.
