The drywall problem is a biggie, and will probably involve some major lawsuits – and maybe legislation – before it’s over.

Most cabinet makers I know of have known about “big box” plywood problems for a long time. I’ve passed on a couple of jobs where the customer wanted me to use “big box” ply because it was cheaper. I only buy plywood from a “real” lumber supplier and avoid most of the problems of “big box” ply. Unfortunately, even domestic ply often has ultra-thin veneers which can make sanding a real adventure. – lol

We as consumers want cheap prices but we don’t want to deal with the consequences of that choice.
