Lumber Liquidators Selling Wood Floors with Formaldehyde

Posted on March 16, 2015 at 9:25pm by


We’re now accepting plaintiffs who seek representation against Lumber Liquidators for selling Chinese manufactured wood flooring containing — wait for it — formaldehyde. Here’s the quick scoop:

Lumber Liquidators’ laminate wood flooring is not what it purports to be. The laminated floor wood contains a dangerous level of formaldehyde gas which exceeds the “CARB regulations in the State of California” and the standards promulgated in the Toxic Substances Control Act, 15 U.S.C. 2601, et. seq. (Title VI- Formaldehyde Standards of Composite Wood Products) and is hazardous to human health. Formaldehyde gas can cause cancer, asthma, chronic respiratory irritation and other ailments including skin and breathing problems. The risk of these health problems is significantly greater for children.
Formaldehyde is the sort of toxic substance to which people may be exposed without knowing they are at risk. Day after day, week after week, month after month, Plaintiff lives in his home, an enclosed place, where his flooring is emitting toxic cancer causing fumes. Lumber Liquidators sold wood flooring that poses great health risks. Their marketing materials for the Toxic Laminate Flooring contain false and misleading information relating to compliance with California standards and designed to increase sales of the products at issue. They deceptively manufactured, labeled, and sold the Toxic Laminate Flooring. The Toxic Laminate Flooring, having no monetary value, is worthless.
