4:28 P.M. — The number of estimated reports nationally from homeowners who have complained of having defective Chinese drywall has reached 6,300, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported today.

In its July status report, the commission said the estimate comes from reports on drywall received by the commission; information from state governors, county governments, importers, builders, distributors, installers and others.

The number of reports received by the commission alone has increased to 3,482, covering 37 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and American Samoa.

Florida has the highest number of reports, or 58 percent.

The agency is continuing its investigation of long-term corrosion on home electrical and fire safety components and expects initial results in fall.

The commission has spent more than $5 million so far on its investigation.
