    • Description:
      The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has received 3,850 reports from residents in 42 States, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, and Puerto Rico who believe their health symptoms or the corrosion of certain metal components in their homes are related to the presence of drywall produced in China. State and local health authorities also received similar reports.

      At this time, experts believe that defective imported drywall was installed in homes built or remodeled from 2001–2008. The number and location of all affected or potentially affected homes are not yet known.

      The CPSC is leading the federal investigation into complaints about imported drywall. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are providing technical support to the CPSC and several state health departments.
