Probably as thin as yours. We'll see how it shakes out. I don't think in a court of law, if someone claims "sickness" due to formaldehyde, considering all the other products in the home that a homeowner uses, that that "sickness" was due solely to flooring sold by LL. What are the damages now?? Mislabeling. Worth a fine?? Partial refund? Is there an insurance claim? This is America after all, everybody blames everybody else. For goodness sakes, go have a chemical ladened hamburger for lunch and fruit juice made from a pesticide sprayed tree while breathing particle smog filled air, and feel much better about your conclusion on what constitutes air quality. And don't forget to brush your teeth and put the stuff right in your mouth.
It might surprise you to know that much of the shelving, furniture, wall finishes, carpet, cabinetry and flooring in your home could contain this dangerous chemical. Formaldehyde can also be found in these building materials:
What Other Products May Contain Formaldehyde?
Many personal cleansing and beauty products contain formaldehyde, think about that before you put them on your skin, your largest organ. Here are some of the personal products that might contain this toxin:
Am I Cleaning My Home With Formaldehyde?
The short answer is… probably.
Are you reading every single label? If not, chances are that you are probably using some fairly toxic chemicals in your house cleaning regime. The best rule of thumb is to look for products that say things like “Non-toxic to humans and aquatic life,” or “readily biodegradable.”
I’ve read my product labels, and they don’t say I’m using formaldehyde containing products.
While it’s great you’re reading product labels, you must be aware that those tricky manufacturers often use synonyms that don’t usually create attention in their consumers. Synonyms and chemicals that “act like” formaldehyde are often used on ingredient lists. Be wary of products containing the following ingredients:
California standards, what about the rest of the states? There is formaldehyde in carpets, other wood products, toothpaste, and lipstick. People are funny.
I cannot see options sellers paying out. Too many. I think they will try to tank the stock or hold it down until after March.
Rating Action: Moody's downgrades Genworth (sr debt to Ba1) following LTC charges; outlook negative
Global Credit Research - 11 Feb 2015
Approximately $4.2 billion of debt affected
New York, February 11, 2015 -- Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the credit ratings of Genworth Holdings, Inc. (Genworth: senior debt to Ba1 from Baa3, see complete list below) and the insurance financial strength ratings of its life insurance subsidiaries to Baa1 from A3 following the announcement of approximately $494 million in after-tax charges related to its long-term care (LTC) business and the further impairment of the remaining goodwill of the entire US Life segment. The bulk of the charges were the result of the company's review of the assumptions and methodology refinement related to its LTC active life reserves. The outlook on Genworth's ratings is negative. These actions conclude the review for downgrade of Genworth's ratings initiated on November 6, 2014.
