In a “60 Minutes” episode aired March 1, 2015, CBS reported that Lumber Liquidators’ Chinese-made laminate flooring contains amounts of toxic formaldehyde that may not meet health and safety standards. The company’s CEO later admitted that preliminary tests had revealed high levels of formaldehyde before the broadcast. The law offices of George W.

French Oak Sky Lakes Pine
Royal Mahogany Vintner’s Reserve

Golden Teak Chimney Rock Charcoal
Handscraped Imperial Teak Nantucket Beech

Sandy Hills Hickory

If confirmed, Plaintiffs will allege that Lumber Liquidators misrepresented these products complied with formaldehyde emission limits. They will seek an injunction requiring compliance, restitution of all money paid, and punitive damages. General contractors and sub-contractors in Ohio who must replace flooring or refund money to their customers because of these allegations are also encouraged to contact Mr. Cochran with any questions they may have.
