Chinese drywall maker to face U.S. lawsuits over allegedly faulty product

Customers have sued numerous drywall companies for health problems and property damage

A Chinese drywall maker will face consumer claims that its product caused health problems, property damage and odor, a federal judge ruled Monday.

Taishan Gypsum Co. Ltd. is facing numerous claims from consumers, who say that the company’s faulty drywall emits high levels of hydrogen sulfide gas. The gas not only smells of rotten eggs, but also can corrode electrical wiring and cause respiratory and skin problems.
