In April of 2015, I purchased and installed flooring from Lumber

Customer Question

In April of 2015, I purchased and installed flooring from Lumber Liquidators. One of my family members informed me that Lumber Liquidaters was on the news because they were under investigation for selling flooring made in China that had toxic amounts formaldehyde. She told me that Lumber Liquidators pulled the product off the shelf in May of 2015 right after we purchased it. The flooring we purchased is on the list of flooring that was pulled due to the formaldehyde. As soon as I heard this I called a certified environmental testing company to come out to do a formaldehyde test. Yesterday I was emailed the test results that stated the levels were elevated and it was at a 97. Today my husband called Lumber Liquidaters to tell them of our test results and was told that they won't accept a 3rd party test, that we have to use their test and laboratory. That doesn't seem right to me. Mean while my 19 month old baby has been on the floor crawling all over this toxic floor. At this point I'm not sure what to do. I want to rip all the flooring out because I don't want my family exposed another second to the toxin. I'm really upset and concerned for my family. They have been exposed to formaldehyde amounts that exceed acceptable long term and short term exposure and also all the money I spent on the flooring. At this point I need to know my legal options.
