According to the following report which appeared on 60 Minutes on March 1, 2015, Lumber Liquidators’ Chinese-made laminate flooring contains amounts of toxic formaldehyde that may not meet health and safety standards.
Formaldehyde is a known human carcinogen that is added to the production of some wood flooring products. This Tech Tip video from the Indoor Air Quality Association (http://iaqa.org), discusses regulations related to formaldehyde emissions from wood flooring products.
I do not recommend anyone make a decision, or come to any conclusion, regarding any laminate flooring purchased from Lumber Liquidators based solely on the 60 Minute report, or the video from IAQA. I will post additional information concerning this flooring as it becomes available.
If you have any questions concerning testing for formaldehyde, or indoor air quality issues, please call 944-7425.
