Lumber Liquidators wood flooring contained carcinogen

People who installed wood laminate flooring from Lumber Liquidators may have been exposed to excessive levels of formaldehyde, which can lead to cancer. According to a recent 60 Minutes investigation, the less expensive wood flooring was manufactured in China and sold by the giant lumber retailer in 46 states. The flooring used glues containing formaldehyde in the core product beneath the actual laminated surface. The problem seems to affect only flooring sold by Lumber Liquidators and not products sold by other major retailers such as Home Depot and Lowe’s.
