Drywall report: China samples worst

And all the blame will still be put on National Gypsum.
And China will be told not to do it again !

South Florida Business Journal
A recent report published by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is being cited as further proof that drywall imported from China between 2004 and 2006 emits higher levels of sulfur gases than domestic supplies.

The report, dated March 2010, reiterates results of a test in which the top 10 sulfur-emitting drywall samples came from China.

The CPSC previously announced similar findings, and the new report adds to evidence of the difference between domestic and Chinese drywall.

National Gypsum, a Charlotte, N.C.-based drywall manufacturer with a plant in Apollo Beach, said in news release Thursday that it believes the report provides further proof it is not responsible for sulfur gas problems associated with Chinese drywall. Two of the samples used by the CPSC were from National Gypsum.
