CPSC Investigating Chinese Drywall

The Wall Street Journal reports: "The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is investigating complaints about Chinese-made drywall that is believed to be emitting unpleasant orders and causing unusual air-conditioner problems." Spokesman Joe Martyak said that "the commission is focusing on whether the sulfur-based gases emitted from the drywall are corroding household wiring and posing a potential safety hazard." The Florida Health Department has begun a similar investigation. While "the Product Safety Commission has no safety standards for drywall," if it finds a safety hazard "it could order a halt in further sales of certain drywall products."
