Welcome to 6 months ago. There was a huge development about it on the news about tons of homes in the GulfCoast region having it after being rebuilt post-Katrina. Even new homes are being affected. It's not just Chinese sheetrock. It's also in Knauf brand sheetrock. The sheetrock contains levels of hydrogen sulfide along with other corrosive/damaging materials. There's a huge stink about it on the local news right now that has been ongoing for the last 5-6 months.

I try everything I can to not buy stuff made in China if I don't have to. I'm not afraid to pay a bit more for a more quality product. The problem is the rest of America is too cheap and ignorant to follow along.

Everything copper in your house would be extremely tarnished/corroded or turn that way after a while.. this includes ground wires inside of electrical outlets, pipes coming out of your water heater, air conditioner coils, etc.

Pull a plate off of an electrical outlet and check.
Check the pipes coming out of your hot water heater.
