“Problem Drywall” Off The Hook?

A CPSC-requested CDC investigation into 11 deaths of people exposed to “problem drywall” found no evidence linking the two.

For those who haven’t been keeping up, problem drywall – aka “Chinese Drywall” and “contaminated drywall” – has been in the spotlight of the last couple years due to concerns of corrosion to wiring within the wall and a sulfurous odor discharge.

The issue gave birth to a few abatement options, at least one of which drew criticism for its whole-home fumigation-style tactic.
