Another bad mark for Chinese-made products is this news I came across a few weeks ago about toxic Chinese-made dry wall.
According to advocacy group America's Watchdog, toxic imported Chinese dry wall are being discovered all over the state of Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana and New Orleans. Some of the signs that a house (especially that was built or remodeled in 2005 to 2008) has the potentially toxic imported Chinese dry wall include the following:
- The house has a strong or noticeable smell of sulphur or rotten eggs.
- The home has experienced repeated air conditioning coil issues or corrosion
- The home's occupants have experienced upper respiratory issues, nose bleeds, or other medical issues.
- Young children or senior citizens may be the first to show signs of exposure to a home with the imported Chinese dry wall.
"We think we are going to end up with 25,000 to 50,000 US homes with the imported toxic Chinese dry wall. If you even think you smell sulphur or rotten eggs in a house built, or remodeled between 2005 and 2008, in Florida, New Orleans, the West Coast, the East Coast, anywhere, please call us immediately at 866-714-6466 or contact us via our web site at http://HomeownersConsumerCenter.Com."I actually remembered to dig up this information after watching a news segment from Brian William's Nightly News last night.
