Today the Consumer Product Safety Commission recommended removal of all sulfur-containing drywall from homes built with the problem drywall. The CPSC’s recommendation is contained in its Interim Remediation Guidance for Homes with Corrosion from Problem Drywall. In addition to the problem drywall, the CPSC recommends removal and replacement of all fire safety alarm systems, electrical components and wiring, gas service piping and fire suppression sprinkler systems, all of which the CPSC states have a direct connection to safety. The CPSC recommendation also noted that, while its scientific investigations are ongoing, information revealed to date justified issuing the interim recommendation.
