Consumer Product Safety Commission Launches Chinese Drywall Information Website
Posted by Benjamin Dona on Thursday, August 20th, 2009 at 11:26pm.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) launched a new website this week dealing with imported Chinese drywall. The Environmental Protection Agency has determined that Chinese drywall may be a potential hazard. Approximately 36,000 homes in Florida and many others states including Alabama, California, Mississippi, Virginia and Louisiana have been affected by the imported drywall.
Consumers with homes known to contain the defective wallboard complain of foul odors, metal corrosion and health problems from occupying their properties. The CPSC website will provide details of the ongoing investigations into the problem including air sample reports, import tracking and analysis of the health effects of the use of Chinese drywall in homes.
The CPSC drywall website can be found by visiting www.cpsc.gov/info/drywall
