Hood: Beware Chinese drywall
Jackson — Mississippi has received multiple complaints of dangerous imported drywall from China being found in their homes, confirmed Attorney General Jim Hood in hopes of warning more residents of the problem.
“Our office has received several complaints on Chinese drywall,” said Hood. “We are investigating these complaints, and encourage other consumers who may be victims to call us. We have been working with the federal government, other states and other Mississippi agencies to collect more information on this issue.”
In recent months, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has received numerous reports from people in 19 states and the District of Columbia involving problems they blame on imported drywall.
“Most drywall used by American homebuilders is made in the United States, but shortages in recent years spurred imports from China,” the attorney general said. “Hurricane Katrina may have lead some homebuilders to used the imported drywall. Some signs of such drywall may include a rotten egg smell, or constant electrical problems.”
