Lumber Liquidators has been sued over the formaldehyde in its laminate flooring products. The allegations include the fact that it knew its Chinese suppliers were not complying with California standards for formaldehyde (called CARB 2) but marketed its products as compliant anyway.
Formaldehyde exposure increases the risk of leukemia and other cancers, as well as the risk of asthma, decreased lung function and chronic respiratory irritation. Labs hired by 60 Minutes found the flooring released formaldehyde in excess of California standards. The EPA called the problem "polluted indoor conditions". The Center for Disease Control (CDC) said the products may cause a 3X higher risk of cancer, and may cause cancers a the rate of 6 to 30 per 100,000.
