CPSC Commissioner Tours Chinese Drywall Home

The new head of the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC), Inez Tenenbaum, has finally seen Chinese drywall damage first hand.  According to, she visited the Cape Coral, Florida home of Richard and Patti Kampf yesterday, where she saw damage to plumbing fixtures and other items.

So far, the CPSC has received 1,311 Chinese drywall complaints from homeowners in 26 states and the District of Columbia. Gases emitted from the drywall are being blamed for significant property damage, including damage to HVAC systems, smoke detectors, electrical wiring, metal plumbing components, and other household appliances. These gases also produce a sulfurous odor that permeates homes, and cause metals, including air conditioning coils and even jewelry, to corrode. People living with Chinese drywall have also suffered eye, respiratory an sinus problems that may be linked to the gases.

During yesterday’s visit, Tenenbaum said there will be no drywall recall because the material is not all the same, News-Press reported.  Tenenbaum pointed out that the wallboard comes from several Chinese manufacturers, the drywall is not all made the same way and some Chinese drywall does not cause problems. Instead, her agency will establish a uniform protocol to remediate the Chinese drywall, and push Congress for a funding source to help homeowners.

The Kampf home was included in a study of 50 homes that tested the gases emitted from the drywall, as well as air quality in the homes.  According to, the results of those studies will be released in October.  At that time the remediation protocol will be established, Tenenbaum said.

According to, Tenenbaum’s visit followed criticism from Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Florida), who has said the CPSC has not acted quickly enough to address the Chinese drywall disaster.  Yesterday, Tenenbaum appeared to agree, saying that when she took over at the CPSC, “there was not a sense of urgency.”   Tenenbaum was confirmed over the summer.
