chinese-drywallThis is a follow up to my blog post on March 25th, “Toxic Drywall Could Be Largest Lawsuit In US History!”    This blog post produced record high amount of views and comments.  We really tapped into a very important topic for the consumer.

 The good news is that the Columbus Dispatch is reporting that it appears there is NO Chinese drywall in the Columbus, Ohio area.  The Columbus Dispatch did a thorough job of interviewing new home builders, home contractors, drywall suppliers and it appears that no toxic Chinese drywall made it to the Central Ohio area.

The Bad news is that the toxic Chinese drywall is definitely in the United States.  In 2005, Chinese manufacturers shipped 500 million pounds rotten-eggsof drywall mainly to southern gulf coast states of Florida, Louisiana & Texas.  Chinese drywall smells like “rotten eggs” and is being blamed for damaging furnaces and electrical wiring, tarnishing jewelry and possibly sickening families.  So the potential is still there for toxic Chinese drywall to be the largest lawsuit in US history.  Just be happy that it is not in our area.
