Lumber Liquidators Chinese Laminate Flooring Class Action Lawsuit

Lumber Liquidators Chinese Laminate Flooring Class Lawsuit

Concentration of formaldehyde, children most likely to be affected.

On website Lumber Liquidators(stock symbol: LL) claims to use safe material and does their own testing.

Check out google news on LL.

This is the post on the Lumber Liquidators Facebook page:

======================================

Lumber Liquidators is a leader in safety, as evidenced by our track record of providing our wide range of products to two million satisfied customers across America.

We comply with applicable regulations regarding our products, including California standards for formaldehyde emissions for composite wood products – the most stringent rules in the country — and take our commitment to safety even further by employing compliance personnel around the world and utilizing the latest in cutting-edge technology to provide our customers with top quality and high value flooring.

These attacks are driven by a small group of short-selling investors who are working together for the sole purpose of making money by lowering our stock price. They are using any means to try and scare our customers with inaccurate allegations. Their motives and methods are wrong and we will fight these false attacks on all fronts.

As recently as late 2014, testing by independent third parties confirmed that 100 percent of the randomly selected cores used in the laminates from the factories that 60 Minutes investigated came back as fully safe and compliant with California standards. While we were unable to witness 60 Minutes’ testing methods and have still yet to see a test using validated methods that has come back as anything but completely safe, out of an abundance of caution, we are now reviewing our processes at these three mills.

We stand by every single plank of wood and laminate we sell all around the country and will continue to deliver the best product at the best price to our growing base of valued customers.

===================================

 

Toxic Warning Statue, it is legal for flooring to contain formaldehyde, used to keep boards together.

The amount leaking is the key, potent.

california strict standards.

CARB Compliant.

31 test samples and all expect for 1 exceeded the emission standards.

Lumber Liquidators was accused of buy illegal lumber from Russia.

Lumber Liquidators is accused of buy flooring tainted with formaldehyde.

Robert M. Lynch, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “Quality and safety have always been top priorities for our associates and our customers. With over two million satisfied customers, we believe Lumber Liquidators has delivered on those priorities–and we will continue to invest in these important areas as we move forward.”  

Tom Sullivan Chairman and founder of Lumber Liquidators was on 60 Minutes denying any wrongdoing.

60 Minutes went undercover to China.

HandCrafted Naan – We think that there are few things better than hot Naan right out of the Tandoori Oven. It’s light, crisp, chewy, and tender all at the same time. We designed our entire concept to get this stuff in your lucky hands whenever you want it.

Artisan Chutneys – California produces most of the nation’s fresh fruit and vegetables. We have to take advantage of this when making our Chutneys. We use custom blends of spices and elevated culinary technique to develop the most flavor possible.

Tandoori Roasted Meats – Our approach is simple. The Tandoori Roasted Meats are marinated in a blend of spices and fresh citrus, then roasted in our high heat Tandoori Ovens. This creates a great sear for maximum flavor.

Burbank to Offer Community Emergency Response Training

Burbank to Offer Community Emergency Response Training

CERT Classes begin March 28th

Post Date:02/26/2015 2:52 PM

The Burbank Fire Department, in conjunction with the Burbank Fire Corps Volunteer Program, will be offering a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) class beginning in March.

CERT classes are part of a national FEMA and Citizen Corps program designed to enhance community resiliency in the time of a significant emergency.  CERT classes give students the basic information and practical skills to prepare for an emergency, mitigate household hazards and if needed, to provide basic levels of care for themselves, their family and their neighbors during the initial hours following a significant emergency.

Upon completion of the CERT classes, students can either retain this information for their own personal benefit or become a registered Disaster Services Worker Volunteer with an organized CERT or Emergency Services Volunteer program (such as the Burbank Fire Corps Program) within their community.

CERT classes offered by Burbank are open to the general public and students do NOT need to be a Burbank resident to participate.  The class is taught over four non-consecutive Saturdays beginning on March 28th.

For more details or to register online, visit www.BurbankCERT.org.

626 Night Market Announces 2015 Season @OCNightMarket @626NightMarket
626 Night Market Announces 2015 Season
ARCADIA, CA (Feb 25, 2015) — 626 Night Market, the original and largest Asian themed night market in the United States, returns for its 4th season this year to produce two events in Costa Mesa and three events in Arcadia. Event dates and information are as follows:
OC Night Market will commence the 2015 season at OC Fair and Event Center on the weekends of May 8–10 and June 5–7.  Event hours are 4pm–12am on Fridays & Saturdays and 4pm–10pm on Sundays. Admission is $5 and parking is $7.  Children 6 and under are free.

626 Night Market will follow with three flagship night market events at the historic Santa Anita Park in Arcadia on July 3–5, August 7–9, September 4–6. Event hours are 4pm–1am on Fridays and Saturdays and 4pm–11pm on Sundays. Admission is only $3 with free parking. Children 6 and under are free.

Each night market event will feature over 200 food, retail, crafts, arts, games, music, and entertainment attractions. Since its inception, 626 Night Market has been a platform for showcasing local food entrepreneurs, businesses, artists, musicians, dancers, and filmmakers. Due to overwhelming popularity, each event is now three days, increasing selling hours, vendor sales, and visitor access.

626 Night Market’s slogan for 2015 is Welcome to your night market. “626 Night Market events have always been about the community, whether it’s bringing more awareness to local businesses and organizations or rising creative talent in the arts and music,” says Alexander Siu, 626 Night Market’s marketing manager, “Attendees are encouraged to take part on any scale they’d like, from participating in contests to performing onstage to showcasing the newest food creation. Make your mark on the night market.” 626 Night Market will be continuing its series of special projects at each month’s event to be announced as the dates near; last year’s art battles, dance competition, fashion show, cosplay contest, and headlining performances from local YouTube superstars were huge draws among the attendees.
626 Night Market is now accepting vendor and performance artists applications. Low vendor rates start at just over $98 per day. Top vendors gross up to tens of thousands per event. Last year’s attendance averaged over 55,000-60,000 attendees per event.
