FIRST BAD DOG FOOD FROM CHINA, NOW DRYWALL

During the height of the building boom a few years ago, Lennar Homes, primarily in Florida, needed more drywall than could be purchased through normal stateside channels.

They started to buy Chinese drywall.  Now with over 50 complaints from homeowners ranging from health problems to corroding A/C units and electrical wiring, the drywall is coming under investigation.

Chinese-made drywall imported during the height of the housing boom is suspected of being responsible for the corrosion and failure of metal components, as well as foul odors, in homes in the Sarasota area and down both coasts of Florida. State and federal health officials are trying to determine whether gases emitted by the drywall are hazardous to humans..."There does seem to be a strong association between the presence of the Chinese drywall and the coil corrosion issues," said David Krause, state toxicologist with the Bureau of Environmental Public Health Medicine.

Builders that used this drywall are living in fear of what the results of testing will reveal.  If it turns out that the drywall is bad, lawsuits will not be far behind.
