A recent 60 Minutes exposé revealed that one of the country's largest flooring retailers appears to be selling some laminate with levels of toxic formaldehyde that exceed California health standards - sign the petition and tell Lumber Liquidators to stop selling any unsafe Chinese laminate immediately, and pay to remove and replace the flooring for those who unsuspectingly bought their products containing this toxic chemical.
Thanks to the work of Global Community Monitor, the world now knows that Lumber Liquidators' Chinese laminate the group tested can emit on average over 6 times the legally allowed level of formaldehyde under California Air Resource Board regulations. Formaldehyde can cause cancer at high levels of exposure, and cause chronic respiratory irritation and trigger asthma at lower levels.
60 Minutes reporting showed that Lumber Liquidators' Chinese factories were well aware of the elevated formaldehyde levels, yet may have knowingly and illegally labeled their products as CARB (California Air Resources Board) Phase 2 compliant. You can see the segment here.
Lumber Liquidators needs to take action today to stop selling any unsafe Chinese laminate, and take steps to recall the product and replace it with a safe and healthy alternative.
