The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently set up a website to keep consumers, drywall manufacturers, builders and others aware of its investigation into the latest problematic Chinese drywall. The CPSC’s Drywall Information Center offers updates on the investigation, help for homeowners trying to determine if their drywall is making them sick, where drywall problems have been reported and other related information.
According to the CPSC Drywall Information Center, Chinese drywall complaints to the CPSC have surpassed 800, n at least 23 states since last December. Of those roughly 800 complaints, 621 have come from Florida alone. The state with the second highest count is Louisiana at 105. Other reports have come from residents in Alabama, Arizona, California, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin, Wyoming, and the District of Columbia.
