At this time, experts believe that defective imported drywall was installed in homes built or remodeled from 2001 - 2008. The number and location of all affected or potentially affected homes are not yet known.
Protect your home, protect your family. The CPSC has developed guides for residents to help them identify drywall problems. Three general areas to consider include:
•Odor: Does your home have an odor that smells like rotten eggs, matches, or fireworks? A sulfur odor in the home might mean defective drywall is present.
•Label: Can you see the back side of your drywall? Some drywall from China is stamped with “Made in China” on the back. However, some Chinese drywall does not have a label or markings.
