Class Action

Armstrong’s Laminate Wood Flooring

In May 2016, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Armstrong Flooring for, among other things, allegedly misleadingly marketing its composite laminate wood flooring as complying with formaldehyde standards – including CARB standards for formaldehyde emissions – when, in reality, it does not. According to the complaint, the flooring emits more formaldehyde (which can cause health problems, including cancer) than allowed by such standards. (Woodworth et al v. Armstrong World Industries, Inc., Armstrong Flooring, Inc., Lowe’s Companies, Inc., and Lowe’s Home Centers, LLC, Case No. 16-cv-1121, M. D. FL.)
