Lumber Liquidators Laminate Flooring Formaldehyde Investigation
Cohen & Malad, LLP is investigating consumer concerns about laminate flooring sold by Lumber Liquidators. California consumers filed a class action lawsuit in December 2014 against Lumber Liquidators alleging Chinese-made laminate flooring exceeded EPA standards for formaldehyde emissions.
Anderson Cooper of CBS’s “60 Minutes” reported that Lumber Liquidators is the largest and fastest-growing retailer of hardwood flooring in North America with revenues over a billion dollars a year. Watch Anderson investigate claims that the laminate flooring manufactured in China for the retailer far exceed health and safety standards related to formaldehyde levels contained in the flooring.
Formaldehyde is a chemical used in the manufacture of resins and particleboard products. The EPA considers formaldehyde a probable carcinogen.
