Americas Watchdog's Chinese Drywall Complaint Center is on the verge of dramatically expanding its initiatives related to all Chinese building products. Aside from the groups ongoing efforts to get a meaningful response from the Obama Administration, with respect to 100,000's of innocent US homeowners, in Florida, or the US Southeast, who are stuck in a toxic Chinese drywall home, these new initiatives will also include a very intense focus on all other potentially toxic, or defective Chinese made building products.
At the same time the group will be launching an initiative focused on imported toxic Chinese furniture. The group says, "We are currently involved in a variety of investigations involving defective Chinese building products, primarily focused on toxic Chinese drywall, blank toxic drywall, that we assume was made in China, imported residential windows, or plumbing parts, we intend to go public shortly with what we already know, and at the same time expand these investigations.
Unfortunately, as a byproduct of our investigations involving imported defective, or toxic Chinese building products, we have just become aware of imported toxic Chinese furniture. We fear imported toxic furniture, specifically leather sofa's could be in 100,000's of US homes, and because of the health risks, this could become a major priority for us. Why do we continue to do business with the Chinese?" http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com

The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center intends to dramatically expand its investigations involving toxic, or defective imported Chinese made building products. Up until this time the group has been primarily focused on getting meaningful federal help, or disaster relief for 100,000's of US homeowners, and family members in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Southeast Texas, and Virginia, who are stuck in a toxic Chinese drywall home. President Obama has yet to mention toxic Chinese drywall one time since taking office? (Please Google President Obama Toxic Chinese Drywall) However, as a byproduct of their investigations involving toxic Chinese drywall, the group has determined there maybe hundreds, or thousands of other imported building products from China, that are either toxic, defective, or both. In addition to exposing defective, or toxic Chinese imported building products, the group intends to key in on other Chinese imports, in the hopes of better US consumer protection, as well as corporate accountability, on the part of US companies, that either use these products, or resell them to a trusting US consumer. The group says, "We do not understand why, or how President Obama, or his US Consumer Products Safety Commission have been given a free pass on the toxic Chinese drywall disaster, but we know the problem is much deeper, and we are going after it. This is the United States, we are not a Banana Republic, and US Citizens, and consumers deserve some leadership on what would seem to be an endless flow of imported toxic, or defective products from China." http://ChineseDrywallComplaintCenter.Com
So what are the facts about possible imported toxic Chinese leather furniture? The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, "We received a disturbing call from a Florida homeowner about a week ago, related to a leather sofa she had purchased, that was made in China. In this instance, the consumer had paid about $3000 for the leather sofa. As soon as it was delivered to her home, she, and her husband became ill. As a trained chemist, she did some research, and quickly discovered her sofa was made in China." The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, "Over three years ago Great Britain, and Sweden had the same problem with Chinese made leather furniture, and they dealt with it. In an exert from an article from the Times of London dated July 21st 2008, The British cases have been linked to an estimated 100,000 sofas manufactured in China. A study in Sweden has concluded that the skin conditions were a reaction to the gas created during the sublimation of a chemical called dimethyl fumarate." The Chinese Drywall Complaint Center says, "We want to hear from any US consumer, who purchased a leather sofa, only to discover it caused skin burns, upper respiratory problems, or other medical issues since 2005. If the Brit's and Europe knew about this problem three plus years ago, why didn't the US?"
