First it was toys tainted by lead paint, now this. They have no standards and will not compete fairly.

I love my old house. The rotten egg smell and the article mentioning fly ash tells me that there is probably some sulfur compounds in the dry wall. Sulfur is highly corrosive so that would explain the corrosion occurring behind the walls.

Actually that would be mostly Taiwanese and Korean products. Chinese products would be what builds your car and more expensive electronics (although the really high end stuff comes from japanese companies but is assembled in Mexico).
