Ark Floors Case Settlement
Ark Floors Case Settles for $3,000
On February 15, 2019, a case was settled with Ark Floors (South El Monte, California)) for selling, supplying, and offering for sale in California non-compliant finished goods that contained medium density fiberboard (MDF). The product, Ark Acacia Laminate Flooring, contained formaldehyde emissions above the limits set forth in the Airborne Toxic Control Measure to Reduce Formaldehyde Emissions from Composite Wood Products (ATCM), which has been in effect since January 1, 2009. Ark Floors has since discontinued sales of the non-compliant product and made improvements to their best management plan to ensure that only compliant composite wood products are sold. Ark Floors has agreed to pay $3,000.00 to settle this case.
