Lawmakers Press CPSC Head for Quicker Drywall Probe

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The head of the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) met with lawmakers yesterday to discuss the agency’s Chinese drywall investigation.   According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, some legislators expressed frustration with the slow pace of the agency’s Chinese drywall probe.

So far, the CPSC has received 1,311 Chinese drywall complaints from homeowners in 26 states and the District of Columbia.  Gases emitted from Chinese 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 and sinus problems that may be linked to the gases.

The Capitol Hill  meeting was attended by Inez Tenenbaum, head of the CPSC.  According to the Herald-Tribune, Tenenbaum told attendees that the Chinese drywall investigation is  “extremely complex and that there probably will not be a quick fix.”

Over the summer, the CPSC had promised that the results from indoor air testing of 50 homes with Chinese drywall would be available in September, but that deadline was pushed back to October.  Then, just this week, the CPSC moved the release date to November.  According to the Herald-Tribune, there is no release date specified for studies on electrical and fire safety concerns.

The meeting came just two days after Tenenbaum visited a home with defective drywall in Florida.  As we reported at the time, she indicated that the CPSC would likely not issue a Chinese drywall recall because of logistical consideration.   According to The Herald-Tribune, an aide to Tenenbaum has since clarified those statements, and said nothing is off the table.  However, because of scope of a drywall problem, it is likely that the CPSC will consider a national remediation program rather than a recall.  Such a program could entail some funding for homeowners from the federal government.
