Inez Tenenbaum, the new chairman of the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission, promised members of Congress on September 10 that her agency would vigorously investigate imported Chinese drywall that has caused problems for thousands of U.S. homes. The CPSC has received more than 1,300 incident reports from 26 states concerning Chinese drywall, most from the states of Florida, Louisiana and Virginia. See CPSC Drywall Information Center. Her commission has formed a Chinese drywall task force that recently traveled to China and met with members of government and industry, as well as collected samples concerning the manufacturing process of the drywall. The task force will release a health assessment as well as results of preliminary indoor air quality tests later this fall.
