A Handyman Helping Hand

latex wall primer

I am having a problem with a room I primed. I used a latex wall primer over new drywall with builders paint, (used in 2 other rooms so far with no trouble). After one week (the walls are not yet painted) there is a horrible odor. The odor seems to be worse a week later than right after I primed. The smell is very pungent, and I don't know what to do, or if this is dangerous. I have windows open, fans running, and still the odor does not dissipate. What could cause this, and How do I fix it?
