KLAMATH FALLS, OR - Homeowners fight Freddie Mac over meth-contaminated housing. More than 190,000 people in all 50 states have joined a popular campaign on Change.org calling on housing lender Freddie Mac to test each home it sells for contamination with methamphetamines.
The United States Drug Enforcement Agency has called the type of contamination Hankins faced a "nationwide issue," and meth lab remediation experts estimate that as many as 2.5 million homes across the United States may be contaminated with methamphetamine and its precursors and byproducts.
