Chinese Drywall Inspection Orlando

“Chinese drywall” refers to an environmental health issue involving defective drywall manufactured in China and imported to the United States starting around 2001.

The report’s release had been promised in 2012. Florida Sen. Bill Nelson sent a letter to the CDC more than two months ago urging it be made public.

“Thousands of Floridians continue to wait and wonder if they will ever see this critical taxpayer-funded research on the possible health impacts of problem drywall. This is unacceptable,” he wrote.

Why some Chinese-made drywall contained high levels of sulfur compounds is unknown, said Kapil.

Hydrogen sulfide is linked to respiratory problems when inhaled, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Most people are exposed to it in industrial settings.
