Builder and Remodeler Resources on Lumber Liquidators

On March 1, 2015, “60 Minutes” aired a news piece about allegations that Lumber Liquidators advertised and sold laminate wood flooring that consumers were told was compliant with California formaldehyde emission limits when really it exceeded those limits. 

NAHB has assembled a collection of information and currently existing resources to help builders and remodelers become knowledgeable about the claims made in the 60 Minutes story and in subsequent developments.

Congressional Letter

On March 4 Sen. Bill Nelson (R-Florida) sent a letter to the heads of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Federal Trade Commission in which he called for independent testing of the laminate flooring to see if it potentially poses a health risk to the public.
