Consumers at Risk Due to Excessive Formaldehyde Levels in Lumber Liquidators Flooring

Consumer rights law firm Whitfield Bryson LLP is representing North Carolina consumers in a class-action lawsuit against Lumber Liquidators, Inc., a laminate wood flooring manufacturer and distributor, for allegedly selling flooring tainted with unsafe levels formaldehyde. Whitfield Bryson LLP has a strong track record of successfully representing homeowners in product defect and liability suits, including a settlement approaching $1 billion for hundreds of homeowners afflicted by the defective Chinese Drywall.

The lawsuit filed on March 4, 2015, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina alleges that Lumber Liquidators falsely advertised and sold their composite flooring manufactured in China as meeting or exceeding California Air Resources Board (CARB) emissions standards. In fact, this flooring emits and off-gases excessive levels of formaldehyde, a gas which is categorized as a known human carcinogen by the United States National Toxicology Program and the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Contrary to Lumber Liquidators’ advertising, the composite flooring fails to comply with all relevant and applicable formaldehyde standards.

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.

A report from “60 Minutes” recently stated that all laminate flooring carried by Lumber Liquidators bears a label indicating that it is CARB Phase 2-compliant, but that its flooring manufactured in China that bears this label is in fact not compliant. The report revealed that the glue and resin used to bond the pressed wood together can be significant source of formaldehyde gas.

Lumber Liquidators has reportedly failed to alert consumers about the alleged high levels of formaldehyde in its laminate wood flooring.
