ATSDR Report on Drywall Now Available

An ATSDR report,Health Consultation: Possible Health Implications from Exposure to Sulfur Gases Emitted from Chinese-Manufactured Drywall, is now available on the agency website.
The report describes the laboratory tests and modeling methods researchers used to estimate levels of sulfur compounds in indoor air of homes built with problem drywall, including drywall imported from China in 2005 and 2006.

ATSDR’s findings and conclusions validate the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) existing recommendations for addressing problem drywall concerns.
In addition to the ATSDR drywall website, information is available from the CPSC’s Drywall Information Center. (ATSDR)
