Lexfloor, Inc. Settlement
Lexfloor, Incorporated Settles For $5,000
In January 2021, the California Air Resources Board and Lexfloor, Incorporated, (Lexfloor), of Richmond, California, reached a settlement agreement in the amount of $5,000. Lexfloor sold, supplied, and offered for sale in California noncompliant laminate flooring that contained medium density fiberboard. The flooring products, Mistral Burgundy, Jatoba, Charleston, Perigold Pine, and Antique Oak, contained formaldehyde emissions above the limits set forth in the Airborne Toxic Control Measure to Reduce Formaldehyde Emissions from Composite Wood Products, which has been in effect since January 1, 2009. To come into compliance, Lexfloor has since stopped sales of the noncompliant flooring and no longer imports laminate flooring.
