Interesting news regarding drywall

There has been some interesting information related drywall in the news lately.  The focus has been on the off gassing of hydrogen sulfide, which has been potentially linked to property damage and health concerns. Of particular note is the damage being associated between the hydrogen sulfide and electrical wires and metal corrosion.  This issue has developed to a point the CPSC has been involved and issued a report on the matter.  To avoid making this post too long I have linked two articles on the issue. The WSJ article also has a link to the actual CPSC report (it’s a fun read) and the second article is related to potential issues with domestic drywall.
