Eight deaths reported by homeowners with toxic drywall

Homeowners with toxic drywall have reported eight deaths to federal consumer safety officials, though no direct linkage has been found. That's according to a Scripps Howard News Service analysis of almost 2,700 drywall complaints to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, and 467 follow-up inspections by the CPSC, obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. Aside from the deaths documented in federal records, Scripps Howard reporter Isaac Wolf also located another death suspected to be linked to toxic drywall.
