Lumber Liquidators Sued Over Formaldehyde Home Test Kits

By on April 1, 2015

A class action lawsuit was filed against Lumber Liquidators Holdings Inc. for allegedly supplying consumers with unreliable formaldehyde test kits along with the flooring sold by the company.  Specifically, the test kits were purportedly intended for customers to determine whether the flooring they had purchased from Lumber Liquidators contained elevated levels of the carcinogen formaldehyde.

The complaint claims that Lumber Liquidators failed to have the home testing kits independently evaluated and the kits were not evaluated in accordance with methods recommended by California air quality regulators.

Also, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced that it is investigating whether the Chinese-sourced laminate marketed by Lumber Liquidators contains unsafe levels of formaldehyde. The CPSC stated that it would seek to have the company recall the laminated flooring it imported from China if safety issues were identified.
