According to the news provider, the 11 people who died lived in Florida, Virginia and Louisiana. A report issued by the CDC indicated that all the people died because of "preexisting chronic health conditions unrelated to imported drywall exposure."
The recent findings by the CDC confirm previous reports from the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), according to the news provider.
The CPSC Web site says the commission has received more than 3,790 reports from residents living in 42 states who believe that their health symptoms or corrosion in their houses are associated with Chinese drywall.
Most of the drywall incidents have reportedly been linked to homes in southern states such as Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama, according to the news provider.
