National laminate wood flooring company Lumber Liquidators Inc. (NYSE:LL) has reportedly sold flooring tainted with hazardous levels of formaldehyde to consumers across the country, according to attorneys at Hagens Berman. The national consumer-rights law firm represents consumers in a class-action lawsuit against Lumber Liquidators and is seeking information from consumers who purchased composite wood flooring products from the company.

Formaldehyde can cause myeloid leukemia and other cancers at high levels, as well as respiratory issues and eye, nose and throat irritation even at low levels. According to recent news, tested samples of Lumber Liquidators’ flooring contained levels of formaldehyde that was 13 times higher than the legal and safe California emissions standards.

Concerned consumers who purchased “Dream Home” Lumber Liquidators flooring may contact Hagens Berman by emailing lumber@hbsslaw.com or by calling 206-623-7292.

Lumber Liquidators began in 1993 and now operates 352 retail stores in 46 states and online.

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

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