The Toxic Chinese Drywall Disaster was never an easy class action, that would simply go away. It was a real disaster that required an immediate federal response from the Obama Administration. The response never happened
(PRWEB) October 08, 2013
The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center is demanding states where toxic Chinese drywall has been discovered in large amounts adopt uniform disclosure laws that indicate the home, condominium, or townhouse has, or had toxic Chinese drywall in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. The group's obvious concern is new people coming into these states, who have never heard of toxic Chinese drywall will unknowingly purchase a home, condominium unit, or a townhouse that contains, or formerly contained toxic Chinese drywall.
Why the sense of urgency?
The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, "We continue to get phone calls every day from homeowners who have just identified toxic Chinese drywall in their home. Because almost all toxic Chinese drywall homes, condominium units, or townhouses we have discovered in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and or Texas have toxic Chinese drywall intermixed with US made drywall the potential number of homes in question skyrockets to potentially hundreds of thousands.
Our most vital concern right now is what are the long term health effects of long term exposure to toxic Chinese drywall is, if the gasses being emitted by the toxic drywall are strong enough to eat holes in a home's copper air conditioning coils, and turn the coils black in about one year, what are the long term health impacts to be for men, women, and children who live in these homes going to be? Why has there been no meaningful federal health studies with respect to long term exposure, and health impacts?" http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com
The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center acknowledges some very well meaning law firms have tried to help homeowners stuck with toxic Chinese drywall homes, but they did not do a very good job of getting the word out to all impacted homeowners, the federal government, and or the EPA never got involved in a meaningful way, so you have a situation that unless addressed in a much more aggressive way, the issue of toxic Chinese drywall homes continues to linger, and add more victims, because of a lack of state required disclosures, or health impact information. http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com
So what needs to happen with respect to toxic Chinese drywall, and homeowners stuck in one of these homes? The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center believes the following must happen:
- The US Centers for Disease Control in coordination with the EPA needs to immediately begin long term health studies related to homeowners who currently live in homes that contain toxic Chinese drywall in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Southeast Texas.
- The states of Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas need to adopt a disclosure document so potential home buyers do not unknowingly purchase a home, condominium, or townhouse that contained, or contains toxic Chinese drywall.
- The federal judge overseeing the toxic Chinese drywall litigation needs to reopen the identification period for homeowners whose home contains Knauf Tianjin toxic Chinese drywall, and or Taishan toxic Chinese drywall that was produced in state owned factories of the Chinese government, because such a poor job was done in getting the word out to all impacted homeowners. The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center will help in this effort, with media, and town hall meetings designed to make sure no innocent homeowners get left holding the bag with a home that is worthless, and much more importantly with potential serious health issues, for themselves, and their family members. For attribution purposes the Chinese Drywall Complaint Center has listed the federal case number related to allegedly Knauf Tianjin, and Taishan toxic Chinese drywall at the bottom of this release.
The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, "The Toxic Chinese Drywall Disaster was never an easy class action, that would simply go away. It was a real disaster that required an immediate federal response from the Obama Administration. The response never happened. Further the universal settlement related to one of the main toxic Chinese drywall makers occurred after hours on February 7th 2013. Since then there apparently have been a few windows to get more victims identified. Unfortunately, they were never publicized. The toxic Chinese drywall disaster has not gone away in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas. How about a meaningful effort on the part of state, and federal agencies to actually protect US citizens, and a litigation process that does a better job of getting the word out to victims?" http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com
