BOSTON, June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Block & Leviton LLP (www.blockesq.com), a Boston-based class action law firm with a strong nationwide presence, is investigating claims that Lumber Liquidators Holdings, Inc. ("Lumber Liquidators" or the "Company") (NYSE: LL) sold floors to consumers with illegal levels of formaldehyde. Claims of dangerously elevated toxin levels, registering far in excess of the standards established by the Environmental Protection Agency and state regulatory agencies, have been leveled against some of the Company's most popular and profitable products, including their Mayflower line of floors.
An article published by a contributor to the news source Seeking Alpha reported that independent testing, conducted at two different IAS certified laboratories, revealed formaldehyde levels as high 0.17 ppm, three and half times the government mandated maximum emission level, in Mayflower flooring.
Block & Leviton's investigation seeks to determine, among other things, whether Lumber Liquidators sold products to consumers in violation of federal and state laws. Consumers who purchased Mayflower brand flooring or other Chinese sourced flooring products at Lumber Liquidators are encouraged to contact attorney Steven P. Harte of Block & Leviton LLP at (617) 398-5600, or to email him directly at Steven@blockesq.com. Additionally, any consumers who have confirmed high levels of formaldehyde in their homes or businesses after installing Lumber Liquidators products or who have been forced to remove recently installed Lumber Liquidators flooring after experiencing overpowering and noxious fumes are encouraged to contact investigating attorney Harte directly. Individuals with any information relevant to this investigation or questions about their legal rights should also contact the firm.
