we always expected to find very heavy concentrations of the Chinese drywall in California, Arizona, Las Vegas, the Pacific Northwest and the Mountain West, because most of the product was shipped through the ports of Long Beach, Oakland, and/or Seattle/Tacoma.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 5, 2009
Americas Watchdog and its Homeowners Consumer Center are expanding their national investigation of imported toxic Chinese drywall into every US state, and every major US metropolitan area. The group has now identified numerous victims in Florida, California, Virginia, Arizona, Ohio, New Jersey, Georgia, Nevada, the Carolinas and Texas. According to the group, "the imported Chinese drywall is coast to coast, and it is so toxic, that it will corrode air conditioning coils, and electrical wiring. This mentions nothing of the health affects related to exposure." The Homeowners Consumer Center is saying, "we think there is about to be a seismic shift from Florida, to the entire nation and in particular the West Coast. Most people we talk to never realized the problem with their home was the drywall. This is the worst environmental mess we have ever heard of." If you are a homeowner in a new home built since 2001 in any state, that has a rotten egg, or sulphur smell, and you have charred, or black electrical wires, you should contact the Homeowners Consumer Center immediately at 866-714-6466, or contact the via their web site at Http://HomeownersConsumerCenter.Com.
