Lumber Liquidators is facing another lawsuit over the amount of formaldehyde contained in some laminate wood flooring it manufactures in China.

Craig Lyzinck, Shari Collins and Patricia Cottington filed the lawsuit on April 16 against the  flooring company alleging it has purchased the tainted flooring for at least two years.

The lawsuit alleged the formaldehyde levels violate the California Air Resources Board (CARB), which states there are no levels of the chemical that are safe for human exposure.

The plaintiffs alleged Limber Liquidators uses formaldehyde resin to bond wood particles together for its laminate flooring made in China. The suit lists 27 different laminate flooring types that contain the formaldehyde resin.

The lawsuit seeks class status for consumers who purchased the flooring, and the plaintiffs believe damages will exceed $5 million. They are also asking for court costs.

The plaintiffs are represented by Alexander Robertson IV, of Robertson & Associates, LLP.

United States District Court Central District of California case number 2:15-cv-2817.
