CPSC Reports on Chinese Drywall Probe

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a status report on its Chinese drywall investigation.

According to the commission, defective Chinese drywall is causing problems for homeowners in 21 states and the District of Columbia.  The commission said it has received a total of 608 complaints about Chinese drywall, with most coming from Florida, Louisiana and Virginia.

The report said the CPSC is pursing  three tracts of testing to determine if Chinese drywall poses a health threat.  These tracts include elemental testing to characterize the components of both domestic and  Chinese drywall; chamber studies to isolate the drywall’s chemical emissions; and in-home indoor sampling that will be conducted in 35 homes from the CPSC’s complaint databases,  and 15 control homes.

The agency also said it would be conducting an Engineering Sciences tests program to determine the affect of drywall fumes on electrical/gas/HVAC units.  The testing will asses if damage to such units pose fire and shock hazards.  CPSC engineering staff have visited a townhouse in Virginia and two homes in Louisiana as part of these testing efforts.

According to this recent report, the CPSC sent a four member team to Florida in March to investigate drywall complaints. At four homes in the Tampa area, the team  observed first hand the noxious odors and corroding metals  that have been the subject of so many Chinese drywall complaints.  While in those homes, the CPSC team members experienced throat irritation, burning eyes, headache and other symptoms.  Those symptoms dissipated shortly after the team members left the homes, the CPSC said.
