ChiCom steel as far as I know these pathetic SanFran commies wanting to eff American steel. Not to worry they will blow billions on high speed rail to ferry non-existent riders to non-existent jobs. YOUR EBT CARD WILL GET CHOO ON FOR FREE!

Nope, these bolts are all American-made. Still Communist (aka: union) work, though.

Per the WSJ these were fabricated in Painesville, Ohio (near my old stomping ground of Cleveland) and the problem was hydrogen embrittlement due to faulty galvanizing.

First thing I thought of was Chinese steel (and some Chinese labor, IIRC), but, Unlike the Chinese-built deck sections, the bolts - some as long 17 as feet - were produced in the United States.
