WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The federal government is set to release its second report on problematic imported Chinese drywall.The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is leading the investigation, was set Monday to release findings from a 51-home indoor air quality study, including preliminary data about electrical corrosion and fire safety.The agency last month released its first report on the drywall, but it couldn’t yet definitively link the materials to health problems or corrosion of pipes and wires that thousands of U.S. homeowners have been reporting for nearly a year.The agency said then it needed to further study the matter before it could consider a recall, ban or other solutions.Hundreds of homeowners have sued builders, contractors, and manufacturers.
