Some China-Made Drywall Causing a Stink

More American media are following up on earlier reports that made in China may be emitting noxious fumes into American homes, following the release of a report by the Florida Department of Health. From Good Morning America:

Turns out, every wall in the Fulks’ 3,000-square-foot house was built with Knauf brand drywall manufactured in China. Testing by a builder, the Fulkses say, has shown the drywall emits sulfur gases that corrode electrical and plumbing components.

Attorney Jeremy Alters has filed one of at least three class-action lawsuits.

“This is massive. This will probably be the largest home defect case in American history,” Alters said.

Plaintiffs’ attorneys estimate enough Chinese drywall entered U.S. ports during the housing boom of 2004 to 2006 to build at least 50,000 homes.
