Homeowners dealing with Chinese drywall need to gut their houses, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The organization says, just removing the building material is not enough to make the homes safe.

Many homeowners have complained that Chinese drywall causes health problems and causes metal to corrode. U.S. builders used the material during the housing boom, because it's inexpensive.
