    Do you think a bunch of Chines lumber jacks went to Russia and cut down 600 year old trees and brought them back to China? Do you think the Russian Government doesn't protect their land? Do you think Russians could have cut those trees down and sold them to China? Do you think an American company is allowed in Russia to check what forests are being cut down with U.S sanctions against Russia? I say it gets thrown out. I have something you can search for that i haven't mention. Does CARB buy flooring from stores to do unannounced spot checks on flooring? Did CARB passed a law in 2014 to do this? If so with the history of LL has CARB found any violations in LL flooring?

    The EPA Is Not Investigating Lumber Liquidators

    When that Law Firm Roberston put out that statement regarding injunction he didn't realize in the EPA link we could read more then what he was stating, he never mention Number 9 which is clear proof you cant investigate a company if no legal standards were set, next once legal standards are set then all flooring companies have to comply. Also another reason LL will not be investigated in harming peoples health both EPA and CARB stated that laminate flooring has 80 to 90 percent LESS formaldehyde then in 1980 here is what Number 9 stated by the EPA,,, 9. Is EPA investigating the sale of the laminate wood flooring as featured in the 60 Minutes segment?

    Because national formaldehyde emissions standards will not take effect until after EPA issues its final implementing regulations, EPA is not yet doing any enforcement investigations relating to the formaldehyde emissions standards for composite wood products.

    A lot of your cheap Laminate flooring is glue down, the click together cost 30 to 40 cents more, but glue is expensive so the cost equals out, but try tearing up glue down flooring, its worse then nailed down flooring. And Laminate flooring is junk

    Manufacturers who create defectives products are responsible not the retailer,,
    The T8 LEDs are sold through distributors to commercial lighting customers, and exclusively at Home Depot (NYSE:HD) for residential usage. Owners of those bulbs should disconnect them and contact Cree for a free replacement or a refund.

  • Formaldehyde is already in a home before flooring is installed and if levels are already at .03 then new flooring is installed it can jump to .06 or higher, basically EPA is saying other formaldehyde sources could be adding to higher levels then just the flooring,,,,,,, While the EPA didn’t take a position on the specifics of Lumber Liquidators’ test program, the agency said on its website that home air testing “may not provide useful information due to the uncertainties” of the method. Air tests don’t pinpoint the specific source of a contaminant, and there are no widely accepted standards for indoor formaldehyde levels, the agency said.

    “Lumber Liquidators agrees with the EPA in that home testing cannot identify the source of formaldehyde in consumers’ homes,” the Toano, Virginia-based company said in an e-mailed statement. “We also believe, however, that indoor air testing can provide guidance on the presence or absence of elevated levels of formaldehyde in the home –- which helps determine whether further testing is warranted.”

  • Its interesting LL wasnt issued to recalls by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission but LED bulbs were, heres the story, Following Cree's (NASDAQ:CREE) announcement Thursday that it is voluntarily recalling its tube-shaped T8 fluorescent lamps, one analyst questions whether consumers will shy away from purchasing the LED lights.

    The North Carolina-based lighting manufacturer said the problem with the T8 LEDs stems from electrical resistance between a spring contact and the printed circuit board. The resistance can lead to electrical arcing, which can cause the light to overheat and melt, posing fire and burn hazards.

    The T8 LEDs are sold through distributors to commercial lighting customers, and exclusively at Home Depot (NYSE:HD) for residential usage. Owners of those bulbs should disconnect them and contact Cree for a free replacement or a refund.

    Cree said its LED light is designed to replace fluorescent bulbs in common commercial and office fixtures. The company estimates the recall affects roughly 700,000 lights in the U.S. and 11,500 in Canada.

    It might well be just a one-time recall, but its impact could be more far-reaching, Summit Research Partners analyst Srini Sundararajan said in a research report Friday.

    "This might make consumers who need to be convinced to use LED-based lamps a little bit gun shy in making the change from traditional lamps," Sundararajan said. "However, with good crisis management on the part of the company, any long-term impact can be minimized."

    The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website has posted a recall notice on the LED T8 fluorescent tubes.

    In addition, formaldehyde emissions are highest when products are new and diminish over time so the longer a product has been in place, the lower the levels of formaldehyde likely to be emitted. ........ EPA stated it and check the rest dumbie, you will see they say OPEN the window DUMBIE KASE

  • fp718591 fp718591 Jun 5, 2015 6:14 PM Flag

    you are a nutcase and i mean mentally ill. read what you posted to me dumbsiht, we all been saying formaldehyde can be reduced, open the window stupid, and eventually formaldehyde dissipates

  • fp718591 fp718591 Jun 5, 2015 5:18 PM Flag

    remember this part, its proof it was overblown and the EPA knows it,,,, formaldehyde emissions from these products have been reduced 80-90% from levels in the 1980’

  • When EPA’s regulations are issued, will they address products like the laminate flooring featured in the 60 Minutes segment?

    Under EPA’s proposed regulations, laminate flooring that is a “laminated product” made by attaching a wood veneer with a formaldehyde-based resin to a composite wood platform would be subject to testing and certification, as would laminate flooring that is hardwood plywood. EPA received a large number of comments on this aspect of the proposed regulations, and EPA is carefully considering the comments in developing the final rule.

    Under the current California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations, laminated products must be made with platforms that are certified to comply with the applicable emissions standard, but there is no formaldehyde emissions standard applicable to the laminated product itself.

    4. Should I be concerned about formaldehyde if I have laminate wood flooring in my home?

    Not necessarily. Formaldehyde is present in many consumer products, including composite wood products used in flooring, cabinets and furniture; wood floor and wall finishes; and is produced by combustion sources such as gas stoves and wood burning fireplaces. Laminate wood flooring is likely to contain some formaldehyde. However, formaldehyde emissions from these products have been reduced 80-90% from levels in the 1980’s and earlier due to mandatory formaldehyde emission standards in California (the CARB standards) and national voluntary formaldehyde emission standards (criteria established by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)). In addition, formaldehyde emissions are highest when products are new and diminish over time so the longer a product has been in place, the lower the levels of formaldehyde likely to be emitted.

    If you use shampoo then you did,,,,,, Nearly 100 personal care products are in violation of a California law requiring that consumers be warned about the presence of cancer-causing chemicals, says an environmental nonprofit in Oakland.
    Chemicals in Shampoo

    Tests ordered by an environmental watchdog group revealed the presence of a cancer-causing chemical in dozens of personal care products that lack a warning label required by California law.

    The compound, a chemically modified form of coconut oil—cocamide diethanolamine (cocamide DEA)—is used as a foaming agent or thickener in soaps, shampoos, conditioners, and similar product

    Well you are still on the board, you must have gone to simpleton school, First deconstructing testing will get thrown out of court. It has been stated even by the lab that deconstructing releases 10 times the amount of Formaldehyde, deconstructing is taking the surface finish off to determine Formaldehyde levels which is the testing 60 minutes did. No one that has new flooring installed chips away the finish of the flooring. Even CARB will tell you that, only proper way to test formaldehyde is in home air testing. LL has sent out over 10,000 to anyone that wanted one, once you did the in home air test you sent it to a lab, you had 3 different labs to choose from and they would contact you if formaldehyde levels were to high, only 3% had higher levels then want California requires, remember LL isn't a lab company and didn't do the testing, it was professional labs. Next not one person was in the hospital, so their wont be any claims allowed in court on medical issues, it will be thrown out. Under Proposition 65 the fine is 2,500 a day for all states for LL to get it off the shelf just like Lowes did, that's peanuts. Next insurers ill have to pay if no intentional neglect is found on LL part, that would be hard to prove.

    One other issue, if people start selling shares of any stock in their acct to get out of margin acct borrowed money and if theirs enough of them then the broker has to contact the short seller to cover his position because they need their hares back.

    Only shares that can be lent out are shares on a margin account, if your shares are paid for they need your permission to lend them out. To many of these brokerage firms like TD ameritdae, scottrade have no ideal what their talking about. People here say i called and they said no i can still short them, and they dont have shares to lend out LOL, heres the truth with the SEC ruling, Typical margin account agreements give brokerage firms the right to borrow customer shares without notifying the customer. In general, brokerage accounts are only allowed to lend shares from accounts for which customers have "debit balances", meaning they have borrowed from the account. SEC Rule 15c3-3 imposes such severe restrictions on the lending of shares from cash accounts or excess margin (fully paid for) shares from margin accounts that most brokerage firms do not bother except in rare circumstances. (These restrictions include that the broker must have the express permission of the customer and provide collateral or a letter of credit.)

    Most brokers will allow retail customers to borrow shares to short a stock only if one of their own customers has purchased the stock on margin.
