According to several reports, most recently CNN, Chinese drywall has been emitting a corrosive gas that is threatening homes built over the past 5 years that have used this product.
Knauf Plasterboard Tianjian and L&W Supply Corp. are two companies being investigated for selling drywall containing strontium sulfide, a substance that is known to produce the odor of rotten eggs and could damage copper wiring and other components.
The number of U.S. homes that have Chinese-made drywall is staggering. A recent study estimates that the product was used in up to 50,000 homes across 40 states, including Florida, California, Arizona, Alabama, Nevada and Louisiana. Who knows how many more homes may be in danger from using this product in renovations.
First is was a food scare, then a milk scare now a drywall scare. The Chinese Nationals are loaning us billions of dollars so that we can buy thier goods so that they can destroy us. As if we didn'y already have enough on our plate to fix. Remind me, just who is looking out for the American consumer? Not the FDA nor anyone else.
