While the drywall problems have not been an issue in Ohio or Missouri like they have in other states, it is a huge consumer issue as 3,794 reports have piled into the government from 42 states.  Residents of newer homes are alleging their health symptoms or corrosion of metal components in their home are due to the problem drywall.  The photo at left shows evaporator coils that corroded.

The Centers for Disease Control told the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) that there is no evidence to link 11 deaths and problem drywall.

The CPSC investigation into the problem drywall continues.
